Finlay Park Fountain – Columbia, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Richland County Photos | Finlay Park Fountain
Finlay Park is a favorite destination for families and festivals in Columbia. It has a man-made lake, waterfalls, a fountain, playing fields, summer concerts, and beautiful views of downtown Columbia.
Finlay Park is named after Kirkman Finlay, former mayor of Columbia, who strived to revitalize the Vista, where the park is located. A statue of Finlay has been placed in the park, showing him sitting on a bench.
The 14-acre park opened in 1991 and features a scenic waterfall that streams into a lake. There are picnic tables, two playground areas, and a small cafe which makes the park a favorite for families. It also is one of the largest handicapped accessible parks in the country.
Many thanks to Wilson Jumper of West Columbia, who took this picture in July 2008.
