Dubes Pond Professional Review and Guide
"This serene pond offers rich wildlife viewing, islands, and coves. Dubes Pond is one of those special places that begs to be explored. It is a mere ten minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Manchester, yet out in the far reaches and coves of this secluded pond you feel as if you are in the North Country of Maine or Quebec.
It is a haven for wildlife, and it would be surprising if you didn’t see herons, snapping turtles, painted turtles, big water snakes, beaver, foxes, or ducks during your visit. This is an absolutely great place to play wildlife bingo, as you are sure to see so many animals. Visit Dubes Pond in early season (April and May) or late season (October and November) to avoid the vegetation and waterlilies that grow so thick you can barely paddle through them. Before or after summer, though, the exploring is phenomenal. There is even a “secret” pond that you can find, complete with a heron rookery."
