Premium Mill Pond and Creek

Premium Mill Pond is best in winter when a variety of ducks may be found. Rarities have included Eurasian Wigeon.

Parking and viewing areas are few due to housing and many private roads. One spot may be reached by taking Dillion Street off Boston Post Road, Route 1 in Larchmont. This turns into Pryer Manor Road. A small parking lot is available before the bridge crossing over the pond.

Another area nearby is Five Island Park. Take Leferve Lane off Route 1 in New Rochelle to the park.

A small marshy area of the creek can be productive. From Route 1, Boston Post Road in Larchmont, turn east onto Lorenzen Street. Park at ball field. The creek is on the right. A Field fare was found near here in 1973.
