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 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.
SCIWAY thanks Shelly O’Brien for submitting this picture. 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.”
