William B. Pond Recreation Area
Located off of Arden Way, this park is named in honor of the first director of the County of Sacramento Department of Parks and Recreation. Mr. Pond intended the American River Parkway to be a place where all people could recreate and enjoy nature’s bounty, and this park is one of the better examples of his realized goal. Physically handicapped anglers can access the large, man-made fishing pond via a specialized fishing pier and ramp. Paved walking trails gently slope around the park, leaving no barrier between enjoyment of nature and every park visitor.
