The Lily Pond is fed by a natural, underground spring originating in Lachlan Swamp. Its small island, vegetated with papyrus, provides a refuge for purple swamphens, black swans and the very noisy reed warbler. When the weather is warm, the water of Lily Pond brims with dragonfly nymphs, water boatmen and aquatic earthworms. Lily Pond appears to be more ornamental that each of the other ponds in the Parklands. Next week I will show you more of the Monet-like bridge that you just see a little of this week.
