Bio Pond, Worth the Walk

Author: Lillian Gardiner, GEd’11

If you need a destination for your lunch time walks this summer, or are looking for a quiet place to sit and read, check out what is commonly referred to as the Bio Pond. It’s actually named Kaskey Park on the Penn campus map.

I stumbled upon it on a recent walk. I had heard about it but I never go that far south while on campus. Like many things off the beaten path, this one is well worth visiting.

This turtle, Delilah, lives at the Bio pond with her many friends. She shares the space with Hugo, the gigantic gold fish.

See Delilah sunning on her rock. Duffy the duck also lives here with his family.

So much more to see–these are just two of the idyllic moments I had on this enjoyable trip.
