Columbia Park is a quiet and stable residential neighborhood, somewhat hidden away from the rest of the city by the parks, river, and railroads. It has quick and convenient access to Minneapolis' downtown by main roads and public transportation. Several small businesses and industries are located in the neighborhood and separated from homes by the parks and railways. The neighborhood is home to a substantial amount of City of Minneapolis park land, including the 18-hole Columbia Golf Course, which was founded in 1919 as well as the following amenities: archery, bicycle and walking paths, cross country skiing trails, sledding, driving range, rugby field, picnic area, playground, dog run, horseshoe pits, tennis courts, and wading pool.
