KINGS GRANT

neighborhood

Kings Grant, a neighborhood of high-end homes on immaculately kept lots, offers the convenience of in-town living within a gated, planned community. Although the front gate is located less than 5 miles from downtown Columbia and the University of South Carolina, the neighborhood offers the bucolic feel of a neatly landscaped suburb.

Visitors and homeowners enter through the front gate, which is staffed by security guards 24/7. The community offers a playground, pool, nature trails, ponds, and tennis courts, while the clubhouse is a popular spot for neighborhood gatherings and holiday events.

The neighborhood is especially popular with families, offering cul-de-sacs and streets with little traffic where kids can safely ride their bikes or parents can push strollers, often with a dog in tow. The location is especially convenient, whether you are working downtown or at USC or commuting to Northeast Columbia. It also has easy access to I-77, which offers a straight shot to Charlotte, NC. The neighborhood is also near Fort Jackson, one of the U.S. Army’s largest training bases,

RECREATION & PARKS

The rolling, landscaped neighborhood features plenty of green space, along with its own clubhouse, swimming pool, four tennis courts, and a playground, so residents don’t even need to leave the community to find plenty of recreation options. There are two nature trails – one paved that winds through woodlands, past ponds, and over wetlands, with an unpaved trail near the rear of the neighborhood goes through dedicated greenspace. The trails are the perfect spot for a jog or a family stroll.

Beyond the Kings Grant gates, nearby parks include Mays Park at Beltline Boulevard and Trenholm Road, Old Woodlands Park off Garners Ferry Road, and Sims Park on Duncan Street in the Shandon neighborhood.
