THe Worlds LARGEST Pond is Right HERE In AMERICA!! :D

By

The Worlds Largest Pond is Right Here in Amerca.  Yes you read that correct.  Isn't that awesome!  I am just like, dumbstruck.  As soon as I read that in some research I was doing, I was like WOW, I have to write about this, and yet I'm at a loss for words, haha. The largest pond in THE WORLD - here. Right here in The United States!!  Why didn't I know this ? ?

                                  the world as seen from space

DID YOU KNOW?  OMG, did everyone in the world know this except for me??!!   Say it ain't so, lol. 

Langley Pond.   It is a few inches shy of being a lake, lol.  Langley Pond has the ONLY Olympic size rowing course in South Carolina.   Yup - the largest pond in the world, is in South Carolina - Aiken County (my county!!) - Langley.

  I knew it was a big pond, lol - I had no idea it was the largest.  

The US and other Olympic teams practiced on Langley Pond for the 1996 Summer Olympics held in AtlantaGA

Regattas are often held there.  One this weekend, in fact.

The  SE Regional Rowing Championships -The United States Rowing Association

If you're in the mood - and within range for a day trip, I highly recommend coming to this event.

If you can't make it this weekend - go anytime.   The Langley Pond Park is great.  Picnic areas, playground, grills, bathhouse, boat ramp, concession stand, swimming....oh my gosh - so much to do.   Suggest hosting your Company Annual Event there!  Wouldn't that be fun.  

 About an hour from Columbia - about 3 hours from Atlanta..... directions

Have fun!

Ok, I have o ask.  What really is the difference between a big pond and a small lake?  How is it determined that it is a pond rather than a lake?  Inquiring inds want to know :-)

I have the same question.  Bring that large of a pond, can we get away with calling it a lake?  I think we should.

inquiring minds!    the article I was reading said it was a few inches shy of being a lake.... so that leads me to believe that size matters :)

I was impressed that it was right here in Aiken County :)
