Columbia is the fast-growing state capital of South Carolina and is home to several unique neighborhoods, all with their own personalities. One such neighborhood is Earlewood. Located only two miles from the South Carolina Statehouse and the rest of the downtown area, Earlewood is a popular residential community for local families, young professionals and college students. 


Largely, this neighborhood is composed of standalone, single-family homes, each with a relatively large yard and comfortable space between neighbors. There are a few apartment complexes in Earlewood, however, both residents and locals can also visit several churches, a community center and park, a local grocery and convenience store, and a local gift shop. 


Columbia, the capital of South Carolina, has a ton of options for residents and visitors to enjoy! They are only thirty minutes away from the only U.S. National Park in the state: Congaree National Park. Additionally, Columbia has a local zoo, children's, state, and art museums, a growing food scene, and several performing arts venues.

Between public parks, sidewalks, and shaded-streets, Earlewood has tons to offer local pedestrians and their pups. First, many streets have well-maintained sidewalks on at least one side of the road, if not both. Those sidewalks are generally covered with large trees, which provide shade during Columbia's "famously hot" summers, and are typically lined with grassy patches, just in case your pup needs a quick pit-stop. However, since this is a residential neighborhood, please walk prepared and clean up after your pup! 


Like most of the greater Columbia area, Earlewood also has a handful of impressive hills. Many should be easily avoided, as long as you are okay with walking along rolling hills instead. 

The borders of Earlewood include River Drive to the north, Main Street to the east, railroad tracks to the south, and the Columbia Canal to the west. River Drive, which cuts through the neighborhood, is the most trafficked road in Earlewood and you will need to exercise extra caution in this area.

Besides the greenery throughout the residential parts of Earlewood, there are two larger public parks in this Columbia neighborhood. First, Marshall Park is a 10-acre public park with plenty of wooded areas. Besides a small playground and a water fountain, Marshall Park also offers a paved path through the wooded area, just in case you and your pup want to escape from the more urban, Columbia setting. 


The second park in Earlewood is Earlewood Park. Home to a local community center, Earlewood Park is a central location for this local community. The community center is generally used for special events, as it has a banquet hall and some meeting spaces. Outside, Earlewood Park is home to a playground, an amphitheater for performances, several sports fields and courts, and a disc golf course. More importantly, this local park is also home to the NoMa Bark Park! This two-acre, off-leash area is a membership-based park, but all application information can easily be found online.
