No, it is man-made to allow ice skating and a shallow pool. Frog Pond has refrigeration, compressors and cooling systems below ground. It is actually a rink, not a pond.
Because it used to be a real pond and there were lots of frogs living in it.
We accept both cash and credit cards for Café purchases, Carousel admission, ice skating admission, and skate rental fees. Dippin’ Dots are cash only. The Spray Pool is free and open to the public.
