Scottsdale Pond/Scottsdale Marsh
Drag box to select area
Bird fans flock to Scottsdale Pond, a beautiful spot just south of the downtown area. The small pond, suitable for fishing, is just off the Rowland Boulevard exit on Highway 101, and Scottsdale Marsh is spread out just to the north on either side of Redwood Boulevard. Interpretive signs are placed along the walkway next to the edge of the pond, and they focus on the wildlife often seen there. Egrets, pelicans, cormorants and a variety of ducks call the pond home. They can be spied upon with binoculars from a wooden gazebo on the southwest corner of the pond. A short walk from the street, a life-sized bronze pelican was installed as public art in 2009. A block north, the marshes have wooden-deck overlooks where visitors can view the wildlife.
