Ahh Guignard park. What a jewel! I dare say this is definately the nicest park in Cayce and one of the nicest parks in the entire Columbia Metorpolitan area.
Old growth tress, both hardwood and pines. A nice circular sidewalk and a bed rock creek running through the middle. It's awesome!!
One problem though. The tranquility of this park is ruined by the drone of over 22,000 vehicles a day driving by on Knox Abbot. Yes, Twenty Two Thousand Cars a Day! The only thing that seperates the park from the road is a wrought iron fence.
Not one square foot of the park escapes the noise. The good news is that this can be fixed.
We really need a solid brick wall along Knox Abbot which will re-direct most of this noise toward the shopping center on the other side. Anybody interested in getting this accomplished? At the very least we need some leeland cypress or some sort of noise barrier.

I kinda like the roar of the cars juxtaposed with the serene nature of the park. And, really, the sound isn't that bad except maybe near the parking lot.

Whatever. The Sound is the same everywhere in the park. Vehicle noise drowns out the tranquility of the entire park.
Sure would be nice to hear the creek ripplin over the rocks without having to stand in it.
Incidently, I don't think it was the creators intentions to have the park Juxtaposed with 22,000 cars/day. And I"m sure there may have been a time when passersby enjoyed the view. Today's hustle and bustle allows few to view the park as they are rushed by in hazzardous traffic. Why not make it better for the ones who choose to stop and enjoy it. Anyway, that wrought iron fence is starting to lean....
