At 13.09 acres, Sinton Pond Open Space provides Colorado Springs residents and visitors with a unique opportunity to experience an urban aquatic habitat. This park site is the only piece of open space remaining in an area full of dense commercial and office park development. It is also a very important trail connector for the Sinton and Templeton Gap trails, both of which join the Pikes Peak Greenway. Sinton Pond hosts ducks, geese, mule deer, song birds, hawks, and falcons. Other notable information about the pond is that springs feed the artificial body of water.
Like so many other special places around Colorado Springs, Sinton Pond is an area of archaeological significance. Flash flooding along South Douglas Creek in 1994 exposed the remains of a Native American site. Other prehistoric artifacts have been found by professional archaeologists, as well.
Sinton Pond is located between Fillmore St. and Garden of the Gods Rd., just east of Interstate 25.
