Please note: Natural Bridges State Beach, which is also located on Delaware Ave., (on the opposite side of the street from Antonelli Pond), is NOT dog-friendly.

The Land Trust owns and is responsible for the management and restoration of Antonelli Pond and the lower Moore Creek Corridor.

The 18-acre property embraces a large, freshwater pond just above Natural Bridges State Beach, as well as adjacent riparian lands.

It was donated to the Land Trust in four parcels between 1982 and 1994.

There are trails for public enjoyment and habitat for abundant flora and fauna.

The main entrance to the park, which is open from dawn to dusk, is located on Delaware Avenue between Natural Bridges Drive and Shaffer Road.


Take Mission Street/Highway 1 North to the west end of Santa Cruz. Turn Left on Swift Street. Turn Right on Delaware. The pond is on the Right side of the street across from the DeAnza mobile home park.

No parking lot available. Dog bag dispenser on-site. Please pick up after your dog.
