Gladstone Pond is a small pond in Killingworth, CT.  The bottom has been dug out in 1977 and again in 1995 in order to control nuisance aquatic plants.   Our August 2006 survey, found only eight aquatic plant species were, with no invasives.

Most of the bottom of the pond is covered with Potamogeton sp . (pondweed), except for a deeper area in the center towards the north.  Brasenia schreberi (watershield) is found in patches all along the edge, and is intermingled with Nymphaea odorata (white water lily) in the north.   Sparganium sp. (bur-reed) is present in small patches along the eastern and northern shore.
