Waterfowl Preserve at Generals Park1561 Quentin Street
Aurora, CO 80045
Historically known as the Waterfowl Preserve, this pond was originally part of the Gutheil Park Nursery. The area was designated a preserve in the 1920’s after the commanding officer of Fitzsimons received a pair of mallard ducks as a gift. The pond was stocked for recreational fishing and was visited by President Dwight Eisenhower, who spent time at Fitzsimons General Hospital recuperating from a heart attack in 1955.
