Wales Garden is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in downtown Columbia, South Carolina’s capital city. Located adjacent to the Five Points district and the University of South Carolina, Wales Garden is situated in one of the most convenient spots for downtown living while still providing residents with gorgeous homes and a neighborly atmosphere.
The neighborhood was originally developed in the 1920’s by a lawyer/banker named Edwin Wales Robertson, the owner of the street car line that ran up Saluda Avenue. Today, beautiful homes still line Saluda Avenue as well as massive oaks that have grown since the neighborhood’s beginnings.
The homes have 2 to 5 bedrooms and range in size from 1000 square feet to over 4800 square feet. You will find a wide range of homes in Wales Garden including duplexes, garden homes, and luxury estates. Most of these are older homes, many of which have been updated and renovated, and a good number of which are listed on the National Historic Registrar. Formal dining and living rooms with hardwoods are common in these homes full of character and charm. Landscaped backyards and sun sitting rooms are also typical in this neighborhood.
Residents of Wales Garden attend Richland County District 1 Schools including Moore Elementary School, Hand Middle School, and Dreher High School.
One of the best parts of Wales Garden is that it is within walking distance to shopping, dining, and live entertainment. Five Points is within a stone’s throw and has great boutiques, cafes, delicious restaurants, and bars with lots of personality. A few minutes away is also the thriving Congaree Vista entertainment district which has 60 art galleries and specialty shops as well as 40 restaurants and bars.
Throughout the year Columbia also hosts many interesting cultural events such as the World Beer Festival, Columbia’s Blues Festival, Columbia’s International Festival, The Midlands Soap Box Derby, and much more. South Carolina State Fair is also held each year in the city during October. Right in the middle of the University of South Carolina’s campus are TheKoger Center and the Colonial Life Arena both of which host numerous amazing concerts, performances, and many Broadway plays that come to town.
For outdoor recreation, residents can go to the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden or the River walk parks. The Congaree National Park, South Carolina’s only national park, is just minutes away and is a beautiful place for canoeing, bird watching, camping, hiking. Lake Murray is only 30 minutes away and is a perfect “outdoor playground” where you can explore the outdoors with kayaking, boating, swimming, fishing, and much more!
