CW Pond

Cameron Wood Amenity Pond

 
Cameron Wood's Amenity Pond is a peaceful place where you can take a walk around the path and meet and interact with your neighbors. It is just a hop, skip, and a jump over to the playground and the ball field, where you'll see lots of kids enjoying the outdoors. It is filled with nature’s creatures and critters, including fish, turtles, ducks, frogs, herons, and the occasional flock of geese. In the summer of 2016, the two fountains in the pond were replaced with one larger, more beautiful, and more updated fountain. We hope you're enjoying the new look!
 
Please be aware of the Pond Rules:
  • Catch-and-release fishing is allowed and encouraged.
  • Please pick up after your dog.
  • NO littering. Please use the trash cans located on the walking path. Keep CW beautiful!
  • NO feeding of pond animals. Bread and food scraps disturb the ecosystem and can be very dangerous to the health of the ducks and geese (see below).
  • NO swimming or watercraft are allowed.
  • Do not adjust the fountain control panels.
No Feeding Pond Animals: Children love animals. For many kids, their first experience with animals that are not their pets is with the ducks in the local pond. The family outings often include a lesson in sharing as they toss the hungry birds bread and picnic scraps and urge them to come closer. Teaching them lessons of generosity and appreciation of wildlife sounds like a great day out with the kids, but it’s not great for the ducks and other pond residents.
 
If you must let your little one feed the waterfowl, please use something more natural, like oats or seeds that are safe for ducks.  For more information, go to: http://birding.about.com/od/birdfeeders/a/feedingducksbread.htm
 
Pond Committee: The pond committee cares for the pond water and fountains, the surrounding paths and fishing deck and coordinates a semi-annual clean-up work day. They also assist the children's committee in conducting an annual fish release, which usually takes place in June. Board Oversight Member is Ben Dulken. Volunteers are always needed!
