Pond Gate

When the pond was restored to its present 2.5 acre expanse in 2002, temporary wire fencing surrounded part of its perimeter to protect newly-planted vegetation while it took root. The intent was to remove that wire fencing as the plantings matured, leaving a natural barrier of foliage instead.

In 2013, Friends decided to design and fund a custom iron gate to close off the stairs. which would allow pond access for maintenance purposes but protect park visitors and the pond's waterfowl from accident or injury at the same time.    

Looking ahead, our Master Plan includes replacing the remaining temporary fencing around the pond with permanent iron fencing as budgets and time allow.
