St. Clair Pond is in the middle of the Fever Creek natural area and next to the Railroad Trail near Barkley Village.
What’s special about this place? This is one of the largest stormwater facilities in the City. This beautiful pond is a both a wildlife sanctuary and a key part of the stormwater controls for the Fever Creek watershed – a wooded corridor and nearby wetlands. To mitigate the loss of wetlands from the construction of Barkley Boulevard, a stormwater detention dam was built on the creek in 1984. The 3-acre St. Clair Pond and wetland system uphill of it were created in 1993. Ponds and wetlands are like nature’s kidneys flushing out harmful substances. This natural area boasts a wonderful variety of plants and serves as a home for many birds, mammals, reptiles, and aquatic creatures.
