Sesquicentennial State Park is a state park in the Sandhills region of South Carolina. Located in the suburbs of the state capital, Columbia, Sesquicentennial State Park's 1,419 acres (5.74 km2) include a 30-acre (120,000 m2) lake. Sesquicentennial State Park also includes many hiking trails, meeting facilities, a dorm, a ropes course, and a dog park.[1]

History[edit]

The park was donated in 1937 by the Sesquicentennial Commission. Many of the buildings in Sesquicentennial State Park, as well as the stone entrance to the park, were built by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps.[1]
