Overview:  These two smaller but long and narrow ponds are located on the northwest corner Broadway and Airport Roads, which is a little west of the Broadway and Jackrabbit Road Ponds.  It is worth a stop if in the area, especially during the shorebird migrations or to be checked for waterfowl.  You never know what might show up at a pond in an area like this that doesn't have a lot of nearby water, so be sure to check if you in the area!

Directions:  If on the M-C 85, take Airport Road two miles to Broadway Road, which the ponds are located at the northwest side of the Airport and Broadway Road intersections.  Mile wise, this turnoff is about seven miles east of the west beginning of M-C 85, and about 15 miles west of the east M-C start at 91st Avenue.  Vice versa, take the Airport Road exit at the I-10 south on Airport Road for 3.75 miles until Broadway Road is reached.
