Description

The loop trail around the pond is a wonderful stroll. Beavers have been active lately—numerous trees have been girdled, and a lodge is at the north end of the pond. Go near sunset and the beavers may slap their tails in the water to warn you away.

The bulk of this preserve was donated by Saul and Janice Poliak. Longtime residents of Redding, they were active members of the community and generous philanthropists. Saul was a pioneer in the industrial convention business. Jan and Saul traveled the world and Jan often told of her experiences at the Mark Twain Library.

Their home was further North on Simpaug Turnpike, and their property included a beautiful pond, know to longtime residents as "Catfish Pond." Each summer, the Poliaks would host a summer party at their house on the Saugatuck. Families brought picnics and there were games for the kids.
