Although this retention pond is surrounded by a chain-link fence and is posted as no trespassing, it's one of the easiest spots in Weber County to view migrating and nesting waterfowl. It is located in Pleasant View on the north side of 2700 N at approximately 900 W. 2700 N is a main thoroughfare but, there is an extremely wide and paved shoulder with an additional 8 feet of sidewalk to avoid traffic. The surrounding habitat is residential and agricultural.
As soon as the shooting begins for waterfowl season in the fall, this pond fills up with ducks and geese. In early Fall it will have a wide variety of resident dabbling ducks, Canada Geese and mergansers. By late Fall it be covered with migrating geese, dabbling ducks, bay ducks and mergansers. In the Spring the pond's 3 islands make for great nesting areas for resident Canada Geese. This pond will hold waterfowl all year but during hunting season is when you will find the most variety including CANVASBACKS, RING-NECKED DUCKS, all 3 species of merganser, CACKLING GEESE and the occasional HYBRID.
The pond is located 1.4 miles East of I-15. Take the 2700 N - Pleasant View exit and head East on 2700 N for 1.4 miles. The pond is on the North side of the road so a U-turn is required (if approached from the East no U-turn is required).
Thanks to Mike Hearell for this location submission.
