Attraction details
Owner description: The Anglers Association of Onondaga is a not for profit organization with fish and wildlife as the main attraction. Webster pond is a small sanctuary located in the city of Syracuse NY at 2004 Valley Dr. Volunteers operate the pond by opening the establishment so that the public can donate and feed the wildlife. The pond is open year around, opening at approximately 9AM-9PM We also have other activities such as a Junior fishing program for ages 7 to 15. Summer and fall concerts sponsored by outside venders and much more. UPDATE: Please note: a new non- profit group was formed to assist the Anglers Association in applying for grants, as they don't have the qualifications. In addition, we will help with maintenance, projects, and fundraising. The non-profit "Friends Of Wildlife" was started by Chad Norton and friends. All funds raised by this corporation will go directly to Webster Pond unless otherwise noted . Please make all trail donations payable to: Friends of Wildlife. for more information or to make a donation please call 315-727-2922

This is a great get-a-way place,for lunch on a sunny day. I worked up at CGH and would come down here for lunch at least 4 times a week.It's so peaceful with all of the ducks swimming in the pond. You can even buy a cup of corn to feed the ducks.....

Webster Pond is a small pond in Syracuse. There are a lot of ducks and geese of all variety’s here. There is a small building on the property that for a donation you can get cups of corn to feed the wildlife. This is an event anyone can come to enjoy. I really have fun every time I go there. If you have a camera, bring it with you. You can get some fantastic shots of these birds. They know people are not here to harm them. They can and will come very close to you. Don’t wear fancy shoes if you are going to explore around the pond. There is no time limit on your visit you can come by for as long as you want. For a nature photographer this is a really great place to get some very beautiful pictures of ducks and geese. Bring family and friends and get some beautiful pictures with nature. Don’t miss out on this cost effective and back to nature relaxing event.

This has been the place for years that we would visit to talk, cry, laugh, play... say goodbye. Beautiful setting. Love the lone swan who has been here for years.
