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 with no invasives.

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