Tiedeman Pond Conservancy Area


This 25-acre glacial kettle pond and restored wetland was part of the George Tiedeman family farm.

Today the pond and shoreline buffer areas are a designated conservancy area. Access to the pond is provided via an asphalt pedestrian/biking trail off of South Avenue, which follows the west edge of the pond to Woodside Heights Park. A nature trail continues around the pond with a 1,000-foot-long, six-foot-wide accessible boardwalk along the east shoreline.

This shallow kettle pond is home to a variety of wildlife, including muskrat, blue-winged teal, great blue herons, wood ducks, green herons, mallard ducks, Canada geese, cattle egrets, black-crowned night herons, double-crested cormorants, garter snakes, snapping turtles, bullfrogs, green frogs, spring peepers and spotted salamanders. Check out the wildlife-viewing platform on the west shore.
