Chill-out in the CSUN Orange Grove and Pond 

The California State University's Orange Grove and Pond in Northridge is ideal for unwinding as you enjoy a homemade meal or one of the Northridge's special doughnuts. The grove is home to many tree species that will provide shade for your picnic while also providing shelter from pesky insects! It features both a pond that opens all year round for fishing (and even ice skating!), as well as two ponds with water animals available only during summer months during their breeding season.

The CSUN Duck Pond was established and run by California State University, Northridge, in 1972; it was originally intended just for research purposes but became popular among students who would bring their ducks there on weekends. Now we have all these adorable little ducklings running around the pond. 

 Residents of our modern apartments in Northridge enjoy watching the CSUN's ducks, whose soft white and black feathers add to the tranquility of the picnic. Additionally, you might see turtles (mostly of the Red-eared slider variety), Koi Fish, and Mosquitofish if you're lucky.

The inviting oak trees, well-maintained pathways, and ample parking space, and a well-marked trail are some of the attractive features you will enjoy while picnicking at this calming tributary of the Upper Los Angeles River.

What is even more, Aliso Creek has a beautiful horse waterer, and if you're lucky, you will catch a few animals quenching their thirst from the charming fountains.
