Tucked away off Cutoff Road the Paradise Pond can be easily missed while
taking in the scenery of Port
Aransas Shopping. However during the migration
this unique freshwater wetland pond is not to be missed. Watch for the signs
marking the Pond turnoff as they come up quick. If coming from the ferry
turn right and proceed down a small road to the parking area. If coming from
State Hwy 361 turn left on West Avenue G and follow the curve to Cutoff Road
then a left once you see the sign for Paradise Pond.
The walk up to the Wetland Pond runs along a narrow private fence then turns
onto an elevated boardwalk. The boardwalk takes visitors into a maze of
trees and reeds upon the pond. A careful eye and patience will provide
opportunity to see rare migratory species in the foliage at the pond. During
seasons beside the migration the pond is a quite spot to visit.
