Due to storms on July 30th, our pond at Deer Path Park has breached the dam. This took out the access road and the bridge to the other side.

Unfortunately there will be NO FISHING IN THE POND or track practices in that area until further notice.
View our Fishing Guide for other park areas to fish.
