I had forgotten about the Duck Pond located on the Virginia Tech campus here in Blacksburg. My husband and I decided to take a stroll around the pond while out hiking last weekend.
I also had forgotten what a little gem it really is. The Duck Pond which was created in 1937 was bustling with activity. It is home to numerous ducks & geese and a great place to fish. Picnicking is a common activity since there are grills, tables, and benches throughout the trail.
While there we saw bikers, walkers, and joggers. We even stumbled upon a photographer capturing a bride & groom amidst the autumn foliage. Beautiful!
I am often reminded by outsiders about Blacksburg's bounty of unique scenery. I'm glad we remembered the Duck Pond and took time to stop by. It's an appealing place to visit in any season.
