Before we went to the Zoo I brought my family to the pond. Grew up right down the street . Very clean and affordable they only ask for a donation. Staff was friendly and the ducks were playful. Brought me back to my childhood.

This is definitely a great place for kids to feed the ducks and geese and also a beautiful place to walk around.

This is a great place to just go and enjoy the quiet as well as take children to feed the ducks. Even if there are a lot of people visiting at the same time, you can still find a quieter spot. I grew up near here and it's one of my favorite places.

I live a half mile away, so I've been here many times. Pack or buy a lunch, settle into to one of the pondside benches and enjoy watching the ducks and geese. Some of thge geese will come up to you and you can feed them from your hand. The pond is attended and they have cups of indian corn... More

If you didn't know it was there, you'd never find it; Webster Pond is a small slice of rural life just minutes from the busier parts of the city. What makes it great is that it's free and if you go during the day, it's often quiet. My kids loved it growing up, and I still drop in from time... More

This was a nice, fairly quiet pond. My toddler could walk almost the entire length and she had a good time trying to feed the ducks, who weren't super interested...but I bet that's because they get a lot of food. It was a pleasant way to spend an hour on a beautiful afternoon. A nice reprieve from the city. No... More

This use to be great place to bring small children to watch the many kinds of water fowl that come to Webster Pond and a chance to feed them them. But thanks to the various TV stations that kept referring to this place as a "hidden gem" on slow news days, it has become overcrowded with parents who don't seem... More

This is a nice duck pond with more ducks in one pond than I have ever seen. Be sure to bring PLENTY of bird seed as there are literally hundreds of ducks, geese and a few swans. NO bread products are allowed. Kids would really enjoy although they might be a little intimidated by the number of birds. There is... More

I went there today with my 14 month old son and he had a blast. Be aware though. . When I googled the address, it took me to the back of the pond where it looked just like woods. I couldn't see the pond from there. Anyway, when I finally found the place, it did smell but it was so... More

This has been a favorite since childhood, and I won't tell you how long ago that was. Brought all of my children and grandchildren here to see and feed the swans, ducks, and geese that llive and/or visit the pond. One of the few cost-free (except the feed of course) places to take small children in the area.
