Ford's Pond - Church Road -Hwy 138

Ford's Pond is a primitive city park, currently under development in partnership with The Friends of Ford's Pond. The City has a Parks Master Plan and looks forward to the future for this increasingly popular attraction offering birds, boating, fishing and a great place to take a walk. Future plans include picnic areas, facilities, playground and parking lot among other ideas.  The 202-acre property is located on the west side of Sutherlin, with parking available off Church Rd. Take I-5 Exit 136 to Hwy 138 W to Church Road; the park is located about 1-mile west of the interstate.

The FoFPnonprofit Friends of Ford's Pond currently maintains a 1.75-mile primitive path around the 95-acre pond and a more challenging 1-mile loop trail on the west hillside. A walking group gathers each Monday at 9am for a brisk walk; all are welcome to join! Additional information is available on the Friends of Ford's Pond Facebook page.

Non-motorized crafts (electric motors - under 5 mph) are allowed on the pond, but must be carried in. Fishing for bass, crappie, and catfish is permitted with a state license.  Ford's Pond is a birding hot-spot with over 185 species recorded including bald eagles.

Ford's Pond is for day-use only, leashed dogs are welcome and pet waste bags are available. Please help keep the park clean by packing out any trash or pet waste out.
