The residents of Somersby Park are fortunate to enjoy four ponds near the entrance to the community. The area is surrounded by walking trails, observation piers, picnic tables and waterfalls. Spearheaded by the Common Area Committee, work is underway to clean the first pond that is naturally fed by a mountain creek. Fish and wildlife were removed before silt and other material started to be hauled away. 40 truck loads will be necessary to move the material to a location where it will be spread out and re-vegetated. Such a project renews Somersby Park’s commitment to preserve natural beauty for all residents to enjoy for years to come.
