Burgess Pond is now part of a parks system there. It is a beautiful wildlife area with lots of frogs and ducks.
My name is Penny Stewart. The waterbody I am going to talk about is called Burgess Pond. Burgess Pond is a very small pond in Woodstock, Ontario. It’s a pond off the Thames River and as a child my father used to take us out to Burgess Pond. One of my fondest memories of Burgess Pond is building a makeshift raft with a bunch of friends and going out on Burgess Pond then capsizing it and swimming back to shore, all this nonsense. This was pre life jackets days.
