Union Pacific Ice Ponds

The historic Union Pacific Ice Ponds, located at 75 Bear River Dr. in Evanston were used to harvest ice for train cars carrying fruit from California between the late 1890s and the early 1920s. The ponds were restored in the 1990s for fishing in the summer and ice-skating in the winter. A walking trail from the ice ponds winds along the Bear River to connect with the Bear River State Park.
