Parks & Recreation Areas
Brick Pond Park & The Greeneway
Riverside Blvd. at 13th St. Bridge
This 30- acre wetland and wildlife habitat is the first of its kind in SC in a downtown location, along the Savannah River and its shoals. The ponds were a former industrial site where bricks and pottery were made. It is a healing ecosystem today and is connected to the Greeneway.
The Greeneway hosts a smooth paved trail for walking, hiking, bicycling, and roller-skating. Built along an abandoned railroad track, the trail offers a wonderful "green tunnel" experience for much of its length. The main trail is over seven miles long, with several more miles of trails branching off of it.
Front Street, 803-441-4300
