South Pond provides a range of habitats suited to birding, with migratory bird, wetland, and wildlife areas. In 2004, Round River Ecology identified 54 bird species at the site in a single day. The pond is sandwiched between two trails—Lowell Trail and Packard Trail—offering additional walking and nature observation opportunities.
