Grenadier Pond, Morning in High Park

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Grenadier Pond. ( 14.2 hectares). View from south, the Queensway.

Fall is a nice time to visit, with the willows turning golden colour.


Soon it will be time to skate. Somebody always cleans the ice and make a hockey rink.

Wild life of swans, ducks and geese, beavers and early morning you can see sometimes a coyote.

Yesterday, I have seen 4 llamas! Yes llamas. They are not native to High park, but there is a small Zoo, and the zoo worker decided to take the llamas for a walk. Strange sight!

Fishing is a popular pastime. Largemouth bass, black crappie, yellow perch and carp are suppose to be in the pond.

It is named after one British Grenadier who fell through thin ice, when crossing to defend the city in the War of 1812.
