Cayce, SC (WLTX) -- There are winding trails and plenty of walkways at the opening of the third phase of the Cayce Riverwalk.
The City of Cayce made an investment of $137,625, with a $100,000 grant coming from the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism.
"This one looks nice. It really is a nice place to go for a stroll," said Doug Jones, out enjoying the newest addition to the Riverwalk with his brother.
By the time the entire Riverwalk is completed, it will span 3.5 miles near the point where West Columbia, Cayce and Columbia meet.
Phase three begins at the City of Cayce Raw Water Intake Facility on Old State Road, and ends at the Thomas Newman Boat Landing, spanning a little less than a mile, according to a release by the City of Cayce.
The trails also fit to specifications of the Americans with Disability Act, are lit with lights supplied by SCANA through an agreement with the City of Cayce, and also include emergency call boxes, the release says.
"It's really peaceful," said Allen Satcher, who said he often comes to the boat launch located near the newest phase of the Riverwalk to enjoy boating. "You can get your mind off things, clear your mind of everything and that way your mind is not as clouded with everyday struggles of life."
