Pertinent Information

The Boulder City Urban Pond is approximately 3 acres with a maximum depth of 15 feet. A paved trail from the parking area to the pond navigates around the entire pond. Water quality is generally good year-round and the water level is typically maintained to the rim. Moderate green algae blooms may occur seasonally, but these are usually short-lived. Rainbow trout and channel catfish are stocked, which occurs seasonally and depends on water temperature. Small spinners, Power Bait, salmon eggs, and flies are effective for trout. No overnight camping is allowed, but there are restrooms, picnic tables, and other day use facilities. There is no fee to access the park.
