The ponds at Prado would probably vary depending on the time of year, rainfall, etc. I'd be very wary about them being deep enough - and clean enough! <LOL> Especially with Super/Extreme Vertical but also in Big Air, there is a bit of concern with the high flying dogs, and how they land. Consider that a dog jumping 7-feet is really at 9-feet above the surface, coming down into only 4-feet of water.
FWIW, Prado also has new ownership. I don't know about the Santa Ana Lakes. Something to think about, tho', is that ideally the dogs need to have a situation that is close to what they'd be seeing in competition and here in the west, we get to have a great dock/pool! I know other parts of the country have diving competitions at lakes, but I've never been to one, so I'm not sure what other challenges they may pose.
