Directions: Go west on Lehi Main Street about 3 miles from the center of town.  Turn left (south) onto Willow Lane (3130 West) and go to the stop sign a couple of blocks away.  Turn right onto Willow Reed (340 South) and Powell Lake will be about 1 block away.

Description: This is a pond split by Willow Reed road and surrounded by a walkway and residential areas.  There are marshy areas with reeds and mud flats on both sides but more extensive ones on the north.

Birding: When the water is low there are more mud flats which provide more migratory birds in the spring.
