This 1,419-acre park, situated in the middle of the sandhills region, features a beautiful 30-acre lake surrounded by trails and picnic areas and a campground.

The park's proximity to downtown Columbia and three major interstate highways attracts both local residents and travelers.

Sesquicentennial is often the site of family reunions and group campouts. Interpretive nature programs are a major attraction to the park.

The park also contains a two-story log house, dating back to the mid 1700's, which was relocated to the park in 1969. This house is believed to be the oldest building still standing in RichlandCounty.

The park was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's. Evidence of their craftsmanship is still present today.
