Featuring plenty of river views, the Riverfront Park is a nice place to unwind and get away, being only a short distance from Columbia's business district and the University. You can see the history of the Columbia Canal and Water Works while looking through one of the old pump houses. The main trail is also a good place for bicycling. There are plenty of benches and picnic tables along the main section of the park, with some spectacular views of the scenery.

Note: Another entrance to this park is located at N 34° 01.983', W 81° 04.080'.
