Shannon Pond & The Meadows

SHANNON POND

Located on our exit road, Shannon Pond is a man-made pond created by Tom Plant circa 1913. He kept it stocked with rainbow trout and it still remains stocked today!

No fishing, please! Fish food is available for purchase at Café in the Clouds, located adjacent to the pond. Children of ALL ages love to see the fish jump right out of the water to catch the food. Please do not bring your own food to feed the trout as foreign foods can be harmful to their digestive systems.

Relax and enjoy the view – you can see Mt Roberts, Mt Faraway and Mt Shaw in the distance. Or take a hike – use Shannon Pond as your starting point for many of our walking trails.


THE MEADOWS

The Meadows are adjacent to Shannon Pond. Enjoy the use of picnic tables as the children run around in the open fields. For ice cream or a light lunch, stop by Cafe in the Clouds.
