  • Great place to enjoy natue. You can walk around the pond, I've noticed numerous people bird watching which is very cool. Fishing is allowed and there is several spots that are very easy to get down by the water to get a close up view. I've seen people with remote control boats in the water as well as homemade sailboats.
