Three Rivers Greenway – Columbia, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Richland County Photos | Three Rivers Greenway
The Three Rivers Greenway in Columbia provides people with a network of trails and parks centered around the rivers that flow through our capital city. From paved walking trails visitors can see where the Broad and Saluda rivers join to form the Congaree River. From forested trails to scenic river overlooks, the Greenway is a wonderful place to relax after work or enjoy on the weekends.
The Three Rivers Greenway is a great place to go for a walk, a jog, or a bicycle ride. You can even catch a play or listen to live music at the outdoor amphitheater just off the Gervais Street Bridge on the West Columbia side of the Congaree River. If you prefer water activities, there are a number of nice fishing spots and convenient kayak and canoe access.
If you would like to learn more about the Three Rivers Greenway, be sure to visit the River Alliance, an organization that is working hard to promote the rivers of Columbia and the opportunities they provide.
To learn more about the human and natural history of the Broad, Saluda, and Congaree Rivers, take a look at SCETV’s informative and interactive RiverVenture website.
Reflections on Three Rivers Greenway
SCIWAY thanks Shelly O’Brien for submitting the photo at the top of this page. She writes, “This photo is looking toward where the Broad and Saluda rivers join to become the Congaree. It’s beautiful, too. There are rapids that boaters and kayakers float down and huge boulders down the center where you can stop and enjoy the river. Between the three trees in my shot and the frame on the right there is a guy out on the rocks with his dog. It looked like he was reading the paper and sitting on a large inner-tube! A fabulous day – sunny, nearly 80 degrees. It was wonderful.”
Three Rivers Greenway Add Info and More Photos
The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Three Rivers Greenway, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
