A nice surprise, but unmarked trails

I was pleasantly surprised to find these rugged trails in the middle of an urban area. I was expecting a few paved pathways, but instead there were real trails with beautiful... read more

Nature at its finest. The vegetation, the ponds themselves, the trails, the wildlife all combine to make a visit to the Ponds a must for people of any age.

I love walking through the ponds and trails with my children. It is a great place of relaxation, tranquility, and nature all hidden inside an urban city landscape.

...as many people have commented, trails are poorly marked. It's ok if you have all day to hike around but if you only have a few hours to blow this may not be the best location. My wife and I found that we thought we were on the right track but eventually got a little lost and ended up repeating... More

Tonnes of space to walk around in ... your dog will love you forever if you take them there. WATCH OUT FOR SKUNKS THOUGH as they are prevalent in this area.

I was pleasantly surprised to find these rugged trails in the middle of an urban area. I was expecting a few paved pathways, but instead there were real trails with beautiful views. I could have done without the mud as other people mentioned, but it makes for an interesting hike. Although it's easy to follow the trails, they are not... More

I have tried to walk these trails summer, spring , winter and fall. The boardwalk is fine but it isn't that long and makes for a very short walk. To really walk you need to get on the trails. The problem is most of the year they are very wet and muddy and mosquitoes galore. The trails are not well... More

Incredible trails for walking, hiking, biking or dog walking. Lots of wildlife, foliage, water wildlife and an amazing number of different locations and things to see. Ponds offer a beautiful ecosystem of impressive things to see. Been here dozens of times and never walked the same path twice. Be ready for bugs and make sure you start out with enough... More

It is a great place for golf, although we don't play, We did play mini-putt that was only partially open. There was a huge water slide, also not open. Our 4 yr. old grandson played in the Jungle Gym. You only pay for the things you do and no entry fee, which was nice for those of us just watching... More

It is nice to see the Wild life, coyotes, wild Turkeys and the Deer, and not have to travel out... More
