Swimming site, Hilo, Hawaiʻi. Natural brackish water pond at the head of Reeds Bay on the eastern side of Waiākea Peninsula. The pond waters are a combination of salt water from the bay and springwater in the pond. During the winter months the spring water is ice-cold, giving the pond its popular name. Swimmers use several large concrete blocks at the edge of the pond as jumping platforms. These blocks are train track foundation remnants of the former Hawaiʻi Consolidated Railway. Fishermen gather a special seaweed for mullet bait from the pond. Also known as Kanākea.
