It was just beautiful, quiet & buggy :-/ But we sat & had a picnic just before sunset. But once the sun went down all the bugs started to come at us so we ended up leaving. But would love to visit again!

A surprisingly quiet retreat in the middle of the city. A great place to take the dog, kids, and camera. It's quite large, so be careful I ended up lost and using GPS to get back to the car.

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
