* UPDATE * 8/29/2015 The pond has been contaminated by a small amount of Oil in the pond, also the pond's condition is getting worse, the road work is also adding more oil and turning the pond into a orange brown color. Also the pond gets Anti-Freeze chemicals from the airport, and with it's expansion it will get worse.
Interesting pond, leads to Oakland beach and city park which give it access to have fish like Shad and alewife in it. We caught what to be something liked Alewife or a shad or something weird it could have been a white perch to.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
