The pond is about 5.5 feet deep and supports fish, turtles, frogs, ducks, and birds. It is fed via an intake from the Pine Brook which runs alongside it and drains back into the brook via the weir beneath the stone bridge at Runnymede Road.
We’re looking forward to a Model Sailboat Regatta and Movie Nights by the Pond.
Ice skating is available in the winter months when the pond freezes and the ice reaches a safe thickness of 5.5 inches. The County tests the ice thickness and stability daily to determine if skating can take place.
Essex County also hosts an Annual Fishing Day.
