This pond is a small pond within the Locke Lake Colony Association. A tributary feeds this pond and there is an earthen dam from here that feeds Locke Lake. This is not a deep pond and there is no data to support how many acres it is.  This pond is bordered by Walker Road and there is a walking path with a bridge to an island on the pond. At the end of the path is a bridge and a gate and although it is not technically called a dog park it is a safe place to let dogs off the leash because it is gated. Fishing, kayaing and paddleboarding are allowed. In the winter many enjoy ice skating or corss country skiing across the pond.  Although there are no rules against swimming this small pond may not be an optimum place to swim becasue it is shallow.
