Mallards at Strack Pond

April 30th, 2015

According to a sign I saw, this glacial kettle pond "was drained and made into ballfields in 1966. However, frequent flooding made the fields unusable. So, in 1995, former Parks Commissioner Henry J. Stern, after observing mallards in left field, proclaimed the site 'for the ducks' and authorized the restoration" of the pond.
