The Layton Duck Pond at Layton Commons Park + Video!

We're wasting no time at getting our long list of free things do in Utah completed. Tonight for Family Home Evening we threw the kids in the car with the heels of bread that we had sitting on the counter and headed over to Layton Commons Park to feed the ducks at the pond. It was quite an adventure and I'm really glad we went.




Jay had never fed ducks before, so he didn't know that most people throw the bread, instead he let the ducks eat the bread right out of his hand from the get-go. It was so funny to watch! I was shocked by how brave he was, but then remembered that it mostly stemmed from the fact that he didn't know any better.




Em loved hanging out on Derek's side and tossing the bread as far as she could throw. She kind of has a thing for chucking items that she's not supposed to, so an activity that meant she was allowed to throw things? She was all in.



This really was such a fun little outing for us for Family Home Evening. The ducks at the Layton Duck Pond were actually really chill. You could walk right through the huge groups of them, and they never tried to attack, bite, or anything. The Layton Commons Park is massive, and has huge open fields, amphitheaters, and a playground. When we got in the car, Jay was already asking when we could go back.

If you're interested in heading there with your family, you can find Layton Commons Park at 437 N Wasatch Dr, Layton 84041. The duck pond is on the south side of the park, opposite of the playground.

  2. Sounds like a great outing; however, please google "why you shouldn't feed ducks bread." Thanks so much for your fun blog and congrats on your move.

    1. Just googled! I never would have known that! Luckily we inherited a large garden of Kale at our new house, so we can feed them that next time ;)
