#WeAreParks – Columbia State Historic Park

Transformation Logo

Welcome to another Transformation Tuesday!

As we continue improving the California Department of Parks and Recreation, it is also important to learn more about the department and showcase what is already amazing within it.

Today we share with you the fifth installment from the We Are Parks video series. The video introduces you to Columbia State Historic Park.


The town’s old Gold Rush-era business district has been preserved with shops, restaurants and two hotels. Visitors have the chance to time-travel to the 1850s, imagining life when gold miners rubbed shoulders with businessmen and the other residents in Columbia. Visitors can experience a bygone era watching proprietors in period clothing conduct business in the style of yesterday. There are opportunities to ride a 100 year-old stagecoach, pan for gold and explore the real working businesses of Columbia.

We invite you to view the video and learn more about this beautiful historic site.
