Delta Ponds City Park Reviews & Ratings
So relaxing at the Delta Ponds. We video taped a heron catching a catfish that escape from him, he had to re-catch it, speared it with his beak several times and finally after 9 minutes in one gulp- DOWN THE HATCH! It was the coolest thing ever. And the turtles swimming on the logs but they were high centered so all four legs were swimming and swimming but they were going nowhere, slow.
As far as enjoying a bit of nature while being right next to Delta Hwy & the local mall, it's a plus. There is a fair amount of road noise, but it's to be expected. Level well maintained path. Lots of birds & plants to enjoy. I wish there were some benches to be able to sit & have lunch, but none yet. Trail starts out between two ponds & then skirts around the East & West sides.
This is my little escape from the city right close to home. My favorite time to walk it is evening. It's not crowded, and many nights I'm the only one there. I always see some wildlife and sometimes even stars. During the day there is lots to see, as well. There are two trail sections both with their own flavor. (Note, if you walk it at night after dark it gets a little spooky solo. In the winter people are set up for overnight camping in the parking lot and surrounding sidewalks can have interesting foot traffic.) The kids will enjoy the hike, too!
Love seeing the turtles sunning themselves on warm days! Great place to walk dogs and soak up some nature!
Nice place to visit. The turtles and herons are happy at home. There's a nice path that takes you to a landing where you can take great photos! Dogs are welcome as long as their leashed. Plenty of parking.
