Junction City Pond reopens with improved access and fishing pond upgrades

March 5, 2024

Junction City Pond and Archery Park reopened on March 4 with improved access and upgrades to the fishing pond.

Fishing pond upgrades include:

  • New concrete paths and walkways on the northwest corner of the pond including improved access compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  • Pad areas for four picnic tables. Picnic tables are under construction but should be put in place in the next couple of months. Two of the tables and pads will be ADA-compliant.
  • Nine lakeside fishing access enhancements including boulder clusters and ADA-compliant cantilevered fishing platforms.
  • New metal benches.
  • New informational kiosks (will be placed in the next couple of months).

The project was funded by a $155K grant from the Fish Restoration and Enhancement Program. Revenue for the program is generated by fishing permit and license fees. 

The pond has already been stocked with hatchery trout and will be stocked again this week so there will be plenty of fish to catch.
