King's Pond

King's Pond is a great spot for duck watching, with Mallards and Wood Ducks being the most numerous visitors. The pond has an informative bulletin explaining how to identify each species found on the pond. The pond is located on the North end of the Cedar Hill Golf Course - a part of the Agricultural Land Reserve. The course in encircled by a 3.6km recreational trail, along which there are other spots where waterfowl and other birds congregate. In the night time, the ducks quiet down and you may be lucky enough to hear the hoot of a Barred Owl.

In the Fall of 2014, the first documented visit by an Acorn Woodpecker on Vancouver Island was reported on the east side of the Cedar Hill Golf Course!
