The Friends of Ford's Pond is
501(c)(3) nonprofit working with the City of Sutherlin, Oregon, to develop and maintain a community park on the 202-acre Ford's Pond Property. 

We recently were awarded a $5,000 grant from the C. Giles Hunt Charitable Foundation, which will be used for trail improvements in 2019.

Join our Monday Walkers!  Meet at the Church Rd parking area at 9 a.m. Rain or shine.  Dress for the weather and winter, muddy conditions.  Updates are posted on our Facebook page.

Our volunteers continue to care for the property by mowing the 1.7-mile perimeter path and the 1-mile hillside loop, in addition to trash pickup and removal. Please keep Ford’s Pond clean and carry out all trash and pick up after your pets. We provide pet waste bags for your use at all three entrances.
