Tips for birding Veterans Park
Veterans Park features a large pond which attracts waterfowl and a good variety of migrants. It can be especially good on spring days when it is blustery along the lake and the birds seek the shelter of trees inland.

About Veterans Park
Veterans Park protects the largest inland pond in the county and a remnant of original Ohio swamp forest.
The park offers four accessible fishing piers, a 1.78-mile loop trail through native wetlands with 830 feet of boardwalk and a wetland and wildlife viewing area.
The property was purchased from the Granger family by the City of Mentor in 1970 and was Mentor’s first neighborhood park.
