New pond in King City

Photo by Barry Wallace
Of all the storm-water ponds that have been created recently, in the new housing developments in King City, this one appears to be the largest.   It is located in the north-east part of the village, behind the subdivision and proposed shopping centre, and south of the railway tracks.   There is a designated park to the east of pond, while on its west side there is an existing waterway that connects with the Humber River and another storm-water retention pond near the King City Public School grounds and the railway tracks.   A tunnel, under the railway tracks, connects these natural areas with the existing housing developments north of the tracks, in the Dennison Street area.   All of these public-use areas will be great for local naturalists, dog-walkers, birdwatchers and kids.
Please comment if you wish.
