Highland Glen Pond is a great neighborhood pond for feeding the ducks, fishing, or even a little kayaking. It is a popular place for families and has extra amenities like a pavilion, sand volleyball court and playground.
There is a great little accessible nature trail that goes around the lake and through the trees.
Here are some views from different times of year. Like all bodies of water, the sky and lighting can make it look vastly different. This pond is three acres, so big enough to have fun, but small enough to see all of it at once pretty easily.
Highland Glen Pond is stocked regularly with rainbow trout, channel catfish, yellow perch, bluegill, and largemouth bass. A few years ago we took our cub scouts fishing and they pulled them out one after another.
One of the most fun things at the pond are the ducks!
It’s so fun to see all of the different shades on the the mallard ducks.
Other birds are also at the pond, depending on the season.
