COLUMBIA, S.C. — When Columbia
spends $3.2 million to convert Greenview’s old and empty pool into a
water park, it will be the third time in a decade the city has spent
millions of dollars on a showcase pool park, for a total of $14 million.Pumping
that much into three showcase parks, each with a pool, has some
wondering whether the city can afford to keep the rest of its parks –
there are 56 in all – or to operate them well.Consultants told the city last year it does not manage its current facilities effectively. “The
city of Columbia has more facilities than can be properly maintained
with the current funding and staffing,” Genesis Consulting Group wrote
in a master parks and recreation plan.Still, City Council in June
approved $1.7 million for upgrades at Southeast Park, Hyatt Park, and
recreation facilities around Owens Field.
