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.

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

Sesqui is often the site of family reunions and group campouts. Interpretive nature programs is 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 Richland County.

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

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
March 4 Sad day at the park by Nature Lover
When we visited we took a walk around the lake. At one end there were 2 overhead picnic table areas. Each was occupied by around 60 to 80 people. Loud rap music was blaring from each of the picnic areas like some sort of competition. There were restrooms nearby but apparently people preferred not to use them as the trails were littered with human feces and toilet paper. It was hot and humid and the smell was disgusting. The park could be nice and the people working there quite friendly. Its sad that people act like this in the parks. Wish they could appreciate nature and the sounds it makes.
