Ponds

McKenzie Towne Ponds

McKenzie Towne has two Storm Water retention ponds (Prestwick and Inverness), which were put in place for community drainage purposes only.

There is no access to this area, and no swimming, boating, skating, etc. is allowed. 

Walkers can leisurely stroll, walk, or run along the pathways around the ponds year-round. Snow and ice are removed in the winter for your enjoyment.
