    This is a peaceful and beautiful trail that will lead to 3 different ponds depending on how far north or south you walk or cycle. If you are lucky, you will see a great number of swans in all 3 ponds as well as various birds and Mallard ducks along the way. Further north is a horse ranch, and you may even see horseback riding from time to time. It is close enough to civilization with many exits to side streets in the middle part of the trail if you get tired and need to leave. I did not give it a 5 because it does get flooded and hard to pass on foot without the proper foot gear after a night of heavy rain. Also, there are no porta potties along the trail, and I often have to choose hydration vs. urination. So plan ahead if you have young children and/or have bladder issues.

    Nice easy walk, good seating and wonderful bird watching. The great blue heron sat motionless for about an hour, the ospreys were diving for fish and the birds were merrily chirping in the trees.

    Absolutely beautiful foliage at this time of the year. This hidden gem is between Belmont Lake State Park and Argyle Pond, so many people have missed it. This tiny little park is beautiful, dogs friendly and the trails are easy to walk. You may need to share the path with horses if you are luck to see one. Limited Parking spaces are on the south end of the park.

    Beautiful pond! A real hidden gem, so nice to stop for a break during our bike ride along the path and take in the beauty nature has to offer at Southards Pond!

    Beautiful park only downside is you may find human body parts. If you ignore that it’s a great place to relax. πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ’ͺ🏽
