More Information

Finlay Park is an oasis in the heart of downtown. You may have driven past it many times on Assembly St. and never knew it was there. It has been the venue of choice for a number of events from festivals and political rallies to road races and Easter sunrise services. Finlay has two playground areas, a man-made lake, waterfalls, a fountain, playing fields, a pergola with swings, and a snack bar that is open in the summer. This is one of the largest handicapped accessible parks in the country. The paved paths are also ideal for strollers. You can easily spend a whole day here with kids of any age. The park is situated between the streets of Assembly, Taylor, Gadsden and Laurel, and remains one of the treasures of Columbia. It is across the street from the Governor's Mansion and has one of the most photographed views of downtown.
