Spring Mesa Ponds
Located just south of the Pattridge Open Space the Spring Mesa Ponds were designed to bring nature into the community and provide stormwater drainage. However the original construction of the ponds area was failing. Areas of the pond were containing water and allowing it to stagnant and the natural look to the area was degraded.
In the construction of the new ponds, larger boulders were brought in to anchor the edges of the pond and sod was put in to creep to the edge of the water, giving the pond a much more natural look and feel. The pump systems controlling the discharge of water were fixed and modified to provide a constant flow. Concrete wiers were also added to create waterfalls where the pond meets the pathway, providing both visual and auditory enjoyment for those that visit the open space.
