The Anglers Association of Onondaga is a not for profit organization with fish and wildlife as the main attraction. Webster pond is a small sanctuary located in the city of Syracuse NY at 2004 Valley Dr. Volunteers operate the pond by opening the establishment so that the public can donate and feed the wildlife. The pond is open year around, opening at approximately 9AM-9PM We also have other activities such as a Junior fishing program for ages 7 to 15. Summer and fall concerts sponsored by outside venders and much more.

UPDATE: Please note: a new non- profit group was formed to assist the Anglers Association in applying for grants, as they don't have the qualifications. In addition, we will help with maintenance, projects, and fundraising. The non-profit "Friends Of Wildlife" was started by Chad Norton and friends. All funds raised by this corporation will go directly to Webster Pond unless otherwise noted . Please make all trail donations payable to: Friends of Wildlife. for more information or to make a donation please call 315-727-2922

Great place to relax and feed the ducks.

We've been coming here for years to spend some relaxing time walking around the pound and feeding the ducks. Great place to spend a quiet Sunday or Saturday afternoon.

I love coming here for the quiet relaxation whether it's to feed the ducks, geese and other critters or to just go for a walk along the trails.

As a child we would go there regularly to feed the ducks and I have kept the tradition going with my child and will with my future grandchild. A gorgeous hidden gem in Syracuse.

Been coming here for 39 years. It's fun to feed the ducks and geese the kids love it and the new path is nice for a walk. Mosquitos are bad in a couple spots so wear bug spray if you plan on walking the path. They have food right there for the ducks and geese.

Nice place with lots of ducks, geese and other water animals. A must go to for family frolic! Watch for goose poo, it is everywhere and it's just how they are...no way to clean it all the time

Take time out from your busy day, pack the kids in the car and head down Valley Drive to Websters Pond. The children, young and old, have a great time feeding the geese, ducks and trout. We went there with our children and now go with them and our grandchildren.

Unfortunately the ducks and geese often stay through the winter months, and the grass and walks show evidence of it. Still nice stop for families; pay just a little for corn feed.

Before we went to the Zoo I brought my family to the pond. Grew up right down the street . Very clean and affordable they only ask for a donation. Staff was friendly and the ducks were playful. Brought me back to my childhood.

This is a great place to just go and enjoy the quiet as well as take children to feed the ducks. Even if there are a lot of people visiting at the same time, you can still find a quieter spot. I grew up near here and it's one of my favorite places.
