Wantagh Mill Pond is a 15 acre 4 foot deep pond located in Wantagh, NY, along Merrick Road just west of the Wantagh Parkway. The pond itself is nestled inside a 54 acre natural area. Historically, the pond was also known as Jones' Pond which still appears on some maps.
Mill Pond is a popular fishing spot. The numbers of fish are not as plentiful as other locations; however, the size of the fish are larger than other Nassau County waters and it is probably the best yellow perch lake in Nassau County. A paved path winds its way around the pond, offering opportunities for wildlife observation and fishing access. The pond often has large numbers of waterfowl on it and is a great place for birders to
visit as marine ducks often visit the pond as well.
