I have been coming to the Ponds,every day for about 13 years, with my dog Midnight , a Miniature Poodle.I find it a very nice to get away from the hustle, bustle, and it is right with in the city. It is nice to see the Wild life, coyotes, wild Turkeys and the Deer, and not have to travel out... More

This spot is wonderful in the winter if you want to brave the cold and go and be in very natural settings quite in the heart of the city yet! Great ski trails and some people were snowshoeing. Dress warmly though as large open areas can be quite windblown and cold.

The Ponds are such a beautiful spot to take in nature. It's hard to believe you are in the heart of the city while walking under those tall trees and passing the wildlife of the ponds. Beautiful spot for a hike and quiet reflection. One of London's best kept secrets.

To me I would list it but to be seen if there spare time and if you are not a nature lover don't even think about it.

I live near the ponds and we have spent many days here. We have done some geocaching with friends here (always fun). I used to pick my daughter up from school at lunch time and we would have a picnic here. Sometimes the family will just go for a walk along the trails. Wonderful relaxing area.

After a fresh snow, I thought I would bring out my snowshoes and head to Westminster Ponds. I had never been there and didn't really know what to expect. What a beautiful area! I spent a couple hours exploring the different paths while taking in the beauty of winter. I do agree that the paths could be marked better since... More

Lovely wooded park surrounding 3 large ponds/ small lakes in South end of London. Trails sufficient for an hour or two of walking or 40+ min run ( some creativity required to connect smaller loops of trail).

Will revisit but bring water with us next time. Did not realize what a big area it covered? Only thing we found a problem was some people with dogs unleashed. Overall a great experience.

Spent two hours walk the trails about Saunders Pond and Tumbleson Pond within the area. Unlike some other reviewers, I found the trails well marked with yellow patches on trees. A current map is available from the Tourist INformation centre at the entrance off Wellington. The trails are earth or boardwalk so can be muddy but were mostly dry when... More
