Wag! Walkers know Wales Garden

Wales Garden is a small, residential neighborhood located in Columbia, South Carolina. Located less than a mile of the downtown area and of the University of South Carolina, Wales Garden is home to many Carolina students, faculty, and staff, along with other young professionals. This residential community is largely composed of standalone, single-family homes, but there is one apartment complex. Beyond that, Wales Garden also has several churches, a community center, a medical service, the National Guard Association of South Carolina, and a well-known, locally-owned restaurant.聽


Columbia, the state capital of South Carolina, is a growing city with plenty to offer both residents and visitors. There are plenty of locally-owned restaurants and bars, art and history museums, and other attractions. Columbia and the surrounding area also has quite a few festivals throughout the year including one for St. Patrick's Day, okra, peaches, shrimp and grits, books, indie movies, food and wine, and Greek culture.聽

What is the terrain like in Wales Garden?

Wales Garden is a relatively good neighborhood for pups and for walking! Depending on the time of day, you may even encounter quite a few students on their way to or from class at the University of South Carolina. Most of this neighborhood has well-maintained sidewalks, many with large trees to provide shade during Columbia's "famously hot" summer days. However, there are a few streets, like Catawba Street, without sidewalks, so you and your pup will need to share the roadways with moving traffic.聽


Columbia is also known for being a rather hilly city and the neighborhood of Wales Garden is no exception. As you travel south, you will experience a gradual incline. If you or your pup have any mobility issues, be sure to stick to the northern part of the neighborhood, particularly in Maxcy Gregg Park.聽

The boundaries of Wales Garden include Blossom Street to the north, Harden Street to the east, Heyward Street to the south, and Pickens Street to the west.

How many greenways are there in Wales Garden?

Even though Wales Garden is such a small neighborhood, there are two greenways within this neighborhood's boundaries. The first greenway, Maxcy Gregg Park, is one of the larger greenways located in Columbia. This greenway has a few walking trails including the聽RA Bloch Cancer Survivors Garden and Labyrinth, a community center, a community pool, and some manicured fields for general recreation.聽

The second greenway in Wales Garden is actually a local tennis club and isn't pup-friendly.聽Additionally, there are a few greenways in the surrounding neighborhoods that should be relatively easy for you and your pup to walk to. Within walking distance, you can explore the Carolina Community Garden, Hollywood Park, Emily Douglas Park, Martin Luther King Jr. Park, and Gibbes Green.聽

The nearest dog park is in Emily Douglas Park. It is a fenced-in area with benches, trees that provide shade, and a water area. Unfortunately, this park doesn't have a separate areas for different sized-breeds.聽
