Ollie's has the perfect walk path of just about a mile. To see nature's finest birds from ducklings to nests of Osprey's is a great way to start your day! Don't forget to bring your camera!

We have been to Ollie’s Pond on several occasions to see the wildlife. Unfortunately our last visit was when the water was very low with very few birds around. It is a good place to see wildlife if the pond is full of water.

This is a fantastic place to roam around and make new friends (both human and otherwise). If you're planning ahead, use Instapark!

I walk to Ollie’s Pond frequently all year. There are always a variety of birds, ducks, sometimes storks or an alligator. There is a walking path that goes completely around it, and there is a parking lot on one side. It is tranquil and beautiful.

If you have not visited Ollies Pond Park and you appreciate nature at its best and walking and peaceful settings then you are missing out. We even say a Alligator sunning on the bank

Easy walking along well marked gravel path, good chance to see native birds, owls and turtles. Much like nearby Kiwanis park.

Ollie's pond is surrounded by a one mile hiking path Very easy walking or running. While encircling the path you can see all kinds of birds and waterfowl. Bring your binoculars and enjoy the sights.

Maybe it was the time of year or time of day but we saw nothing except for a few birds & ducks. It was a pleasant walk about a mile around (we walk 3 -6 mi. Daily). Only worth it if you are very close...More
