Sometimes we can all use a good midweek pick-me-up. Our favorite way to get happy before hump day? The Sandhill Farmers Market on Tuesday afternoons!

Just a 15-minute drive from your apartment at Providence Park, the Sandhill Farmers Market takes place every Tuesday afternoon from 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm at Clemson’s Sandhill Research and Education Center across from the Village at Sandhill. Continue reading

Place to Be: Blue Fin Restaurant

With Providence Park Apartments’ convenient location near downtown Columbia, Forest Acres, and The Village at Sandhill, it can be hard for our residents to choose where to eat their next meal! In our Providence Park Places to Be series, we try to help by suggesting some of our favorite spots. In this week’s edition, we’re talking about the delicious Blue Fin Restaurant!

Blue Fin is in Sandhills, just a 10-minute drive from your Providence Park Apartment. You’ll find great steaks and seafood dishes here, in addition to a killer happy hour during the week and an awesome brunch on Sundays.

The restaurant also has live music throughout the week and a wonderful wait staff. We love it for family outings, date nights, or girls’ night out!

Get Outside!

With Earth Day this weekend, Providence Park wants to take a minute to remind you of some of the incredible green spaces near our apartments in Columbia. In addition to our own apartment community with its resort-style pool and green areas, we’re close to some of the best parks in Columbia!

One of our favorites is Sesquicentennial State Park! Just a 15-minute drive from Providence Park will get you to this beautiful state park where there’s something for everyone to do!

With trails for running, walking, or biking, you can get your exercise on land or rent a canoe or kayak to do some water workouts! Bring the kiddos and they’re sure to love the playgrounds, ponds with ducks and geese, and brand new splash pad.

The park is open from 8:00 am – 6:00 pm.

Where will you be spending your Earth Day weekend?

St. Patrick’s Puppies

St. Patrick’s Day in Columbia is a big deal. Last week, we wrote about the 35th Annual St. Pat’s in Five Points celebration. While it is one of our favorite events, there’s another great thing happening this St. Patrick’s Day that we think our Providence Park Apartment residents will be excited about: the Columbia Animal Services St. Patrick’s Day Adoption Special!

If you have been thinking about adopting a cat or dog (and when you live in apartments as pet-friendly as Providence Park, why wouldn’t you!), St. Patrick’s Day could be a great time to bring an animal into your life. Continue reading

Perfect for Pups

Finding a place that you and your pup can both enjoy shouldn’t be stressful. At Providence Park, we love your furry friends just as much as you do. That’s why our Columbia apartments are pet-friendly and perfectly suited for you and Fido.

Not only can you and your dog take long walks throughout the expansive surrounding parks, you can also go to the resident-exclusive dog park on site! Your dog will love getting to sniff and say ‘hi’ to his neighbors at the off-leash park.

If you or your pup want more time to mingle with your pals, our wonderful staff and CARES Team put on ‘Yappy Hours’ throughout the year.

“Residents that stop by the office with their pets are always welcomed with a smile and yummy dog treats,” said Providence Park’s property manager Candice Weaver. “We absolutely love our furry friends!”

For more information on having a pet at Providence Park Apartments, call our leasing office or check out our Pet’s Corner.
