When visiting the creek environment, please remember that most of our creeks receive stormwater that can carry pollutants. Due to their urban environment, most of the creeks have bacteria levels that exceed state standards and could pose a health risk to humans and pets even when the water looks inviting. Please enjoy our creeks from designated trails in our parks.
Calf Pond Creek is located in SE Gainesville. The Calf Pond Creek Watershed is located in the southeast quadrant of Gainesville. It drains into a shallow pond named (predictably) Calf Pond (approximately 8.5 acres in area) that contains sinkholes draining into the Floridan aquifer from which the City of Gainesville obtains its drinking water supply.
The Calf Pond Creek Watershed is a hydrologically closed basin, meaning that surface water flows into the watershed but no surface flow leaves the watershed. The Calf Pond Creek basin encompasses nearly two square miles of residential and agricultural land.
