KC Water Garden Society Presents the “Turtle Crawl Water Garden Tour”

Published on April 22, 2022

The 29th annual Greater Kansas City Water Garden Society tour will continue with the successful multi-day format of five separate Saturdays in proximity during  July and August 2022. Our “Turtle Crawl Water Garden Tour” will highlight different locations around the metropolitan area. As we celebrate the art of nature, we will continue to host artists during the day at each site and will conclude with a local business-sponsored evening garden party.  

The Turtle Crawl Water Garden Tour is a laid back, go-at-your-own-speed kind of tour. Each water garden has a unique feel, sometimes dictated by the style and era of the home, lay of the land or the homeowner’s dreams. You may see formal symmetry, a relaxed flavor or a rustic and charming cottage flair. At each turn, you will find a surprise, whether it be a garden train traveling over a rushing stream, chickens and ducks calling your name, a museum-quality statuary and everything in between. Full-sun backyards with riotous, noisy colors of lilies and lotus or dappled shade gardens with ferns, hostas and mosses whispering their secrets can be found on all five Saturdays. 

This event is the society’s only fundraiser to build ponds for schools and other nonprofits. To date, we have built and sustained over 60 water features. Plan to attend 50-plus water features this summer. Eventbrite will begin selling $10 tickets May 1, 2022, and tour books and tickets will be available at area garden centers starting June 1. 

Children younger than 14 years of age may attend free of charge. The tour dates are July 9, July 23, Aug. 6, Aug. 20 and Aug. 27.  Tour one or all five for the same price. It’s sure to be turtley awesome!
