The ponds are between two busy roads. Ducks will follow you down the path quacking for food. Great Blue Herons abound, as do some bugs and flies and mosquitoes on occasion. Still...it is a pleasant respite and gentle walk among well populated waterways.

The Delta Ponds are just off the Willamette trail. They are a great place to relax and watch the amazing bird wild life. Many photographers enjoy capturing the beauty of nature. We were even treated to a Bald Eagle and Great Blue Herons!

Great place for a walk, jog or bike along these ponds. Take a sack lunch and make a day of it, but watch weather about rain!

Lots of ducks, geese, turtles and other wildlife. Fed by the Willamette River. Walking path around 3/4 of the ponds. It will be even better when the last 1/4 trail is constructed.
