2018 Pond and Garden Tour
June 23 & 24, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Our 18th annual Pond-O-Rama Pond and Garden tour will feature 33 beautiful water features and private gardens located throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area and in metro east. You can go north or south, east or west and find St. Louis Water Garden Society members ready to share their gardens and talk about their ponds. Each location is scheduled for one of the two days of the tour, either Saturday, June 23 or Sunday, June 24. The hours for this self-guided tour are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. One-third of the locations are new to the tour this year, so there will be lots to see. Plan to spend both days visiting with our members. Please be aware that there are some spectacular installations a bit further out that should not be missed.

Tickets for the tour will be available to members at the May and June general meetings. Each member household is entitled to two free tickets. Each person 18 years of age or older visiting the gardens must have a ticket, but children under the age of 18 do not need one. Tickets will be delivered to retail outlets in mid-May.
