He was a passionate advocate of nature reserves and its environment.
The pond here is the second largest fresh-water pond in Bermuda after Spittal Pond
. There is also a lookout deck over the pond. Warwick pond is a home to many migratory and resident waterfowls including barn swallows that you will see during fall and common snipes in winter. The reserve is full of cedars and allspice trees.
There is a nice walking trail here which has been improved in 2003 and now having better pathways and handrails. There are sign boards all around telling you the stories and origin of the plantations and the animal life. You will be able to clearly identify and understand the different habitats like the pond, marsh, forest and the associated flora and fauna like Bermuda's native cedar, palmetto and killifish.
