Sesquicentennial State Park is a state park in the Sandhills region of South Carolina. Known to locals as Sesqui,(), the park was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression and was donated to the City of Columbia by the Sesquicentennial Commission in 1937. The park contains 1,419 acres (5.74 km2) and is approximately 12 miles (19 km) from downtown Columbia, South Carolina.
This park has three picnic shelters, four picnic pads, and 84 campsites that vary in amenities & sizes. The park provides rental fishing boats, paddle boats, standup paddleboards, kayaks, canoes, fishing access to the 30-acre (12 ha) park lake, and four trails providing over 12 miles (19 km) of recreational access. The Sandhills Trail is an ADA-accessible two-mile (3.2 km) loop around the park lake. The bike trail is 6.5 miles (10.5 km) of moderate sandy terrain with several changes in elevation. Sesqui is the only South Carolina State Park that offers a full-scale splash pad and a membership-only dog park that allows dogs to run off-leash.
