Brick Pond Park is a forty acre restored wetland and wildlife habitat located in the heart of the City of North Augusta along the Savannah River front. The park trails are easy and allow visitors to travel through shaded forested wetlands, along open sunny paths, or to comfortable seating to stop, relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the varied wildlife that live within or visits the park. The park is part of the North Augusta Greeneway Trail network where you can walk or bike along the Savannah River banks or travel through the hills and valleys across the City of North Augusta for over twelve miles. Brick Pond Park is a free public park open from dawn till dusk every day. Feeding wild animals at Brick Pond Park is against the law and is strictly enforced. Alligators are naturally present within the park so please closely supervise children at all times and dogs must be leashed and not allowed in the water. Parking is provided at the North Augusta Municipal Center, the North Augusta Greeneway Trail Entrance off Riverside Boulevard or within the Park at two designated parking areas off of Railroad Avenue.

Minimally developed park, with alligators, turtles, fish, deer, birds, etc. Great for an early morning walk, or birdwatching. Be sure to keep your dog on a leash - plenty of gators!

Like to walk at the park, if you want to fish you have to get a permit from the North Augusta city building.

This is my favorite local park. There is plenty of parking, Shaded trails that give clear viewing to the ponds, which are used by local and migratory birds. You can see herons, owls, monarchs, hawks, egrets, storks and, maybe, the small alligator. Wonderful way to spend a lazy afternoon.

Brick Pond Park is aptly named - this area of the North Augusta riverfront was once mined for clay for local brickworks and potteries - part of a 14 foot thick strata of stoneware clay mined since the late 1800s. The area is where the last of the Old Edgefield District potters produced nineteenth and early twentieth century stonewares that... More

This is a nice little park tucked away just below the municipal building. There's a surprising amount of wildlife here, as well as some pleasant scenery. And it's free.

I frequent the Greeneway trails in North Augusta and decided to check out Brick Pond Park, which is nearby. Peaceful area with wildlife. Well tended and pet friendly. Highly recommend taking a stroll through the area before or after hitting the Greeneway trails!

I have visited here many times both alone and with my children and grandchildren. We were able to see wildlife every time. Most of the times we saw turtles and an alligator and lots of birds. It isn't just about the ponds though, from here you can also visit the Greeneway trails and Hammond's Ferry.

A beautiful natural place to walk. Real alligators are in the water. Herons gracefully stand at the shoreline. Plans are for a baseball stadium and shopping which will ruin this beautiful place.

This is an excellent place to walk and check out the local flora and fauna. I saw many different kinds of birds and turtles and some really interesting mushrooms. Sadly, no alligator this time though.
