Playgrounds are one of the many places where our community comes together, and CA is proud to provide more than 170 safe spaces for children in Columbia to connect, play and thrive. In Columbia, they’re known as tot lots, each with its own unique features and amenities to explore.

Our play areas are located on the nearly 3,600 acres of land that CA maintains for the entire community and available for all families to use. Even better, you can access these playgrounds while enjoying a walk together on CA’s pathways. It’s all part of our commitment to serving Columbia and supporting community wellbeing.

Caring for CA’s play areas

Keeping more than 170 play areas clean and safe is a major component of our Open Space team’s work. CA’s inspection program involves constant maintenance, from cleaning up trash and replacing mulch to pressure washing and inspecting all equipment.
