Clemson University is drafting a master plan to develop Aiken County's public parks. If the county follows through, these parks will be regional "signature" parks, according to Dr. Bob Brookover of Clemson's International Institute for Tourism Research and Development.

The plan for Langley Pond includes building cabin lodging, a baseball/softball/soccer complex, an events center, expanded nature trails, and expanded picnic shelters. The park currently hosts rowing events, but only has a children's play area, picnic tables, and small trails.

The plan for Boyd Pond Park calls for nature trails, picnic areas,, and to build an education and events center. The goal is to make a regional park for the Jackson-New Ellenton area that will attract activity and growth.

The plan for Roy Warner Park calls for Multi-purpose fields, playscapes, walking trail, and picnic area.

Dr. Brookover said that currently the most prominent recreation areas are Citizens Park and Hitchcock Woods in Aiken and Riverview Park in North Augusta, all 3 are ran by the cities, not the county.
