Welcome to the Artificial

The park by Columbia Tech Center has walking paths around an artificial grove of trees, surrounding an artificial pond (with waterfall) that feeds into an artificial creek. The birds don't mind, taking up perches throughout, and enjoying the water for bath time.

It's a welcome island of artificiality in what I believe was once a quarry, now with housing and commercial development all around it. When I go to the gym, I park across the street from here. The creek comes out on the other side of the street near my lot and pours down into another, dramatic artificial waterfall. Someone really budgeted for this! Well done.
