Been coming here for 39 years. It's fun to feed the ducks and geese the kids love it and the new path is nice for a walk. Mosquitos are bad in a couple spots so wear bug spray if you plan on walking the path. They have food right there for the ducks and geese.

Nice place with lots of ducks, geese and other water animals. A must go to for family frolic! Watch for goose poo, it is everywhere and it's just how they are...no way to clean it all the time

Take time out from your busy day, pack the kids in the car and head down Valley Drive to Websters Pond. The children, young and old, have a great time feeding the geese, ducks and trout. We went there with our children and now go with them and our grandchildren.

Unfortunately the ducks and geese often stay through the winter months, and the grass and walks show evidence of it. Still nice stop for families; pay just a little for corn feed.

Before we went to the Zoo I brought my family to the pond. Grew up right down the street . Very clean and affordable they only ask for a donation. Staff was friendly and the ducks were playful. Brought me back to my childhood.

This is definitely a great place for kids to feed the ducks and geese and also a beautiful place to walk around.

This is a great place to just go and enjoy the quiet as well as take children to feed the ducks. Even if there are a lot of people visiting at the same time, you can still find a quieter spot. I grew up near here and it's one of my favorite places.

I live a half mile away, so I've been here many times. Pack or buy a lunch, settle into to one of the pondside benches and enjoy watching the ducks and geese. Some of thge geese will come up to you and you can feed them from your hand. The pond is attended and they have cups of indian corn... More

If you didn't know it was there, you'd never find it; Webster Pond is a small slice of rural life just minutes from the busier parts of the city. What makes it great is that it's free and if you go during the day, it's often quiet. My kids loved it growing up, and I still drop in from time... More

This was a nice, fairly quiet pond. My toddler could walk almost the entire length and she had a good time trying to feed the ducks, who weren't super interested...but I bet that's because they get a lot of food. It was a pleasant way to spend an hour on a beautiful afternoon. A nice reprieve from the city. No... More
