Long Description:
This hatchery is part of the City of Oklahoma City's Parks and Recreation Department. It is located just north of the Lake Hefner dam on the north side of W Hefner Rd. The hatchery now has 6 one-acre ponds.

The area is also a boon for local wildlife. It is usual to see deer browsing on the vegetation between the ponds, and many waterfowl raise their young on the property. When I was there to take pictures for this waymark, there were a good number of Canada geese and their goslings around the ponds, and I could see an egret standing just onshore of one pond.
