The Wonderful World of Water Gardens

Published on February 17, 2018

The Water Garden Society of Greater Kansas City is celebrating its 25th Annual Water Garden Tour, July 7th and 8th, 2018. Plan to visit the greater Kansas City area to tour over 40 stunning water features. Many of the sites have never been on tour before and there are numerous gardens with working trains, fairy and sculpture gardens. Visualize water sparkling like diamonds, as koi and goldfish play among the exotic water lilies and native plants, while dragon flies dance on top of the stately blooming lotus. Many families make the annual Water Garden Society tour a must- see summer adventure.

Our theme this year is “The Wonderful World of Water Gardens.” A home water garden can take on many different personalities based on its’ setting, from a small city formal lot, a country cottage with a chicken house, to a palatial estate with multiple ponds and majestic waterfalls. Whether you are a pond owner looking for some new ideas and inspiration for an upgrade or you are a new homeowner thinking of taking the plunge to incorporate a water feature in your own backyard, you need to mark your calendar for July 7th and 8th, 2018. The 25th Greater KC Water Garden Society tour is a feast for all the senses, beneficial to the environment and wildlife, and a place to get answers to many of your questions. There will be pond builders at the sponsored ponds to explain the process and how to incorporate your style in a water feature.

Tickets for the 2-day tour will be available at all garden centers in the greater Kansas City area, Hen House Markets and Westlake Hardware. Prices for the self-directed driving tour is $10 for both days. Children under 14 are free with an adult. This one-of-a-kind tour serves another purpose. Each year, the proceeds benefit construction and maintenance of educational and restorative water gardens and other educational programs in the Kansas City metropolitan area. For information on discounted tickets at $8 per person for groups of 10 or more, email us at Visit our website at and on Facebook. For further inquiries, call Linda H. at 816-305-5963. The Water Garden Society of Greater Kansas City is a not-for-profit charitable and education society.
