From Jan. 8 - Jan. 31, this park is closed every day (including weekends) for all purposes from the area in the vicinity of NAP offices at 3875 E. Huron River Dr. only from 3 p.m. to midnight due to deer management sharpshooting activities.

​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.
