My friend attends UNM and as I waited for his classes to be finished I looked around campus. His guidance said look for the duck pond, it'll be perfect for you. It was! Perfect place to open a book, enjoy nature, and read to your hearts content.

Who would think this nice pond is on the university campus. Vacationing from Illinois this quiet spot did the trick. Nice place to take young children. Best part is it costs nothing. Wildlife is calming and soothing so I'm glad I came.

Right in the heart of the UNM campus. this is a great place to people watch, duck/goose watch and even turtles to watch. Lovely landscaping makes it a little oasis in the middle of a thriving campus.

It is hard for me to believe TripAdvisor asked me to rate the UNM Duck Pond as a "destination". It is a small, pleasant, manmade body of water in the center of the UNM campus. Let's be honest, on almost any other college campus, this would be a footnote at best - definitely not a destination. However, in New Mexico,... More

The Duck Pond is on the UNM campus. Parking can be a bit tight, but if you go after class hours or on the weekend, you should be able to find metered spots. Good place for a picnic or even a special event. It is just a pond with ducks, but it's a nice park in the middle of the... More
