The West Columbia Riverwalk, 4.5 acres of the Three Rivers Greenway, is located between Gervais Street and Knox Abbott Drive running along . Its half-mile path accommodates all levels of physical access including baby carriages and wheelchairs.
The West Columbia Riverwalk groundbreaking took place in February 2002. This was a major step forward in a joint effort by the City of West Columbia and the River Alliance’s plan to protect our regions' rivers and provide recreational benefits to collective communities.
The ceremony marked the beginning of the West Columbia Riverwalk construction. The Riverwalk is a physical connection to the Cayce and Columbia portions of the system, providing a true residential riverfront next to the New Brookland Mill Village and Guignard neighborhoods. The amphitheater is a wonderful gathering place for concerts and events. Paths will open the river for walking, running, bicycling, and gazing at natural beauty. A canoe landing is also available at the New Orleans Restaurant located on Alexander Road in West Columbia.
The bathroom looks like an 1750's River Inn, recalling the ferry crossing on the old colonial road from Camden to Augusta.
