Megalodon, our last “Shark in the Park” has been found! Joe and Nina discovered him this morning at Scout Park located at 4177 North Colony Boulevard. The park has primarily been used as a site for many scouting ceremonies, soccer practices and a relaxing place to sit and view the lake or watch the ducks and turtles in the fountain pond. Scout Park was originally named Latimer Park but when adopted by a local Boy Scout troop was re-named as part of the adoption process. The scout’s five-year plan included cleaning, landscaping, adding a picnic area with tables, a pedestrian footbridge, and lighted flagpole. Early residents had rumored the neighborhood builder, Fox & Jacobs, would someday fill in the pond and build a house on it. However, over the years the pond became a popular "catch and release" fishing location. Silt had almost filled the pond and it was dredged in 2004. At that time the aeration fountain was added and new stock of fish were placed in the pond. The northern section of the park includes a section of The Colony Shoreline Trail. Thanks for playing "Shark in the Park" with us. We hope you continue to enjoy the local parks. Get out and Play!
