There’s nothing stale or static in Columbia’s Rosewood neighborhood. Just five minutes from the University of South Carolina, the area is filled with energetic residents who continually improve the area.
A central draw is Owens Field Recreational Park right in the middle of Rosewood. It’s chock full of amenities, including a disk golf course, biking and walking trails, doggie play space and youth soccer leagues. It’s also home to a one-of-a-kind Wally Hollyday Design Columbia skate park.
Rosewood also has City Roots, Columbia’s only urban farm. You really can watch your salad grow! Several markets–including Rosewood Market, one of Columbia’s first health food markets–are within walking distance. Just a few blocks down Rosewood Drive is Five Points, another area filled with shopping and dining.
Columbia homes in Rosewood, primarily ranch-style single family homes, range in price from $75,000 to $300,000. House sizes average 1,200-1,600 square feet, many of them built in the 1950s and 1960s with new Columbia homes and condominiums sprinkled throughout. It’s a popular place to live, attracting everyone from families, young professionals and college students to retirees.
The Rosewood Community Council keeps residents informed and engaged. For example, check out the construction at Rosewood Park. They’re putting in a rain garden, adding a parking lot and replacing the lighting.
Residents enjoy the friendly atmosphere, diversity and convenience of in-town life and amenities, all in a vibrant, tree-lined community. Rosewood is a great place in Columbia to call home!
