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.
Located along the sweeping curve of SW 62nd Boulevard, Terwilliger Pond provides an ever-changing view of the beauties of nature. During times of high water, the pond explodes with color when the American lotus blooms and wetland birds arrive. As the waters recede, wetland birds depart and songbirds add a splash of color to the new plant growth that emerges.
