The Columbia Street Landing Archways

Fixing up the end of Columbia Street for use as a riverside park and picnic grounds included two archways, an old-fashioned gazebo, a scenic walk down to the river, passing by a beautiful fountain along the way. One of the archways featured intricately carved designs.  

The first arch is at the intersection of Columbia and Rutland Street.

In April of 2008 the stately wrought-iron archway over the entrance to Columbia Street Landing park in Covington was dedicated. Here are some photographs of the arch, its construction and official dedication. Click on the images to make them larger. 

The second arch is down the hill near the water's edge, just past the gazebo and the water fountain.



Not only is Columbia Landing a good place to chill out and enjoy a relaxing moment sitting on one of the several river-facing benches while you watch the water flow by, but the park is also the setting for several live music concerts during the year. Hundreds of people bring picnic lunches to the "Sunset at the Landing" concert events and enjoy visiting with neighbors while listening to music.

And, when folks are in the mood for a little paddling, kayak paddling that is, then Columbia Landing becomes a good launching place.
