Anybody know if they drain the pond during the winter? Wishful thinking, but I know of some parks that do. I am sure I am not the only one who has lost a disc in there, and would like to be there if they do.

Nope no drainage. They both are approx 12-15 ft deep in the middle. And there are no plans in the future to drain, from talking with the parks crew up there recently. They do restock w/ fish yearly tho. Lol.

Richard is right, they don't drain (and if it works the way the parks people told me it does, it's not a drainable system as it cycles runoff and sewer water from the neighborhoods to the north east to prevent the park from always being a standing bog of water).

Also, don't eat the fish.

Damn I was going to eat any fish I caught while dredging for the disc. I figured it was a lost cause, always a bummer to lose a disc especially a new one. Oh well, guess it will provide a bacterial breeding ground.

Who says the water doesn't come into play at Willmore? ;)
