Mitchell Pond

On June 22, 2015 Council approved the resolution to rename the pond located at Heritage Ranch to Mitchell Pond.

Accessible only by foot, a short 10-15 minute walk from Heritage Ranch along the Red Deer trail system. This stocked trout pond has everything to make a family outing enjoyable. Surrounding the pond are vast areas of grass for the kids to play on. There is a small playground, a day use picnic shelter, and public washrooms and all are accessible within 100 ft of the pond.

Contact Heritage Ranch for more information on booking the picnic shelter at Mitchell Pond for your next gathering.
