Designated as one of Ohio’s Important Birding Areas by Audubon Ohio, Pickerington Ponds is a premier spot for observing more than 260 species of birds. The combination of seasonal ponds, rich wetland vegetation, and bordering woodlands serve as a magnet for migrating waterfowl, shorebirds, and land birds.

Waterfowl floating in the pond, vultures circling above, and crickets chirping in the tall grasses make this preserved wetland area that borders on Franklin and Fairfield Counties so special.

Activities available: Biking, Nature Preserves, Bird Watching, and Picnicking.

Domesticated dogs and cats are permitted in picnic areas, parking lots, and roadways. Pets shall be on a leash no longer than 6 feet.
