South Pond Nature Area is a 16-acre park located north of Huron River Drive and south of the Gallup Park bike trail, and the railroad tracks. The most visible part of the park is the pond to which Chalmers and Malletts Creek drain. There is access to the water from Huron River Drive. Across the pond is a piece of land that is a beautiful example of an oak savanna community. This natural area is undergoing restoration efforts by the staff and volunteers of the Natural Area Preservation Division, including prescribed ecological burns and removal of non-native invasive plants. Access is by canoe only.
