Brick Pond Park – North Augusta, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Aiken County Photos  |  Brick Pond Park

Brick Pond Park is a nicely restored wetland, stormwater treatment system, and nature park. Contributor Larry Gleason shares that the ponds were created when clay was extracted here to make bricks and pottery, giving the park its name. The ruins of a former brick factory sit across the street, a stark contrast to this beautified space.

Brick Pond Park occupies a former industrial site where jugs, terra cotta pots, and bricks were made in the late nineteenth century. Floods in 1929 caused the brick manufacturing plant to move to higher ground on Buena Vista Avenue. The plant relocated again in the 1950s to Center Street where it crosses with the North Augusta Greeneway.

The park is located in the old Hamburg area, which is now a part of North Augusta. Hiking and bicycling trails wind throughout the wetlands, the ponds, and the forest. Non-motorized boats are allowed in the pond.
