Markham Pond is a 13-acre pond located in Maplewood’s Hazelwood Park. It appears to have originally been a low floodplain of a drainage way that is now Kohlman Creek. The area around Markham Pond was a gravel pit prior to 1972. The pond was likely constructed by the City of Maplewood in the 1960s, then redesigned, deepened and expanded in 1972 as a stormwater management basin with an outlet structure. The city acquired land adjacent Markham Pond in 1976. Most of the pond is about 3-feet deep, and it ultimately drains to Kohlman Lake.
