WANTAGH MILL POND PARK CLEAN UP DAY

Saturday, May 18th - 8:30 am to 11:00 am

2935 Merrick Rd. (West of Wantagh Pkwy.), Wantagh, NY 11793


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.

Help Legislator Steve Rhoads keep Wantagh Mill Pond beautiful and join him for the Wantagh Mill Pond Clean Up Day on Saturday, May 18th at 8:30 AM. All are welcome to join Legislator Rhoads in this effort to help keep our community beautiful.
