Land for Augusta Park was donated to the Park District in 1981. In 1982, the District completed the park’s development, adding a small playground, walkways, trees and shrubs. The playground equipment was updated in 1999, as part of the District’s Master Plan. During winter, the park’s small bordering hill is a popular spot for sledding. Augusta’s low-lying location means that it also serves as a detention pond. In 2004, the park was the first to have its wood chip play surface replaced by deep blue, shredded rubber chips.  In 2006, the playground equipment was replaced.
