There are many stories reguarding how Piper’s Pond got it’s name.

…"And once, the Black Watch Regiment, en route between Halifax and Saint John, having marched from Halifax to take the steamer at Windsor, stayed over night in the town, and a pond in Clifton woods was given the name of "Piper’s Pond," because a piper of the regiment having dropped his watch ino the water, thriftily dived after it – but never came up!"…

– Katherine Hale – Clifton, Windsor, Nova Scotia 1926
