Upcoming Event: Pond Tour in Knox & Blount counties

Wanted to let everyone know about a pond tour that will be held on
Saturday , July 10 , from 10am - 5pm ,
and Sunday July 11, from 1pm-5pm.
The cost is $10. per car which comes with the brochure map of where to find all of the ponds and gardens. I think everyone will be amazed.

The pond tour is being hosted by The East Tennessee Koi Club. We are a nonprofit organization.
This is a self guided tour in the Knoxville and Blount county areas of east Tennessee.

This year we've chosen The University of Tennessee Medical Center's Healing Garden as our chairity. Proceeds to benefit both orgaizations.
The Healing Garden was first established for their cancer patients but is now enjoyed by all of their patients, their families, and UTMC's employees.

For more info go to
(currently the info on the website has not been updated...keep checking though... it should be up shortly)

If you have questions just ask me. Or there is a contact link on the website.
Hope to see you on the tour.

Will the website have previews or anything? Any idea of how many stops there will be (and how many will be near Knoxville)?

RE: Upcoming Event: Pond Tour in Knox & Blount counties

Hi Brandon,
Sorry to go MIA. ;)
On the website I think there are pictures of members ponds which some of those are on the tour. We've now got 31 ponds on the list. There are 9 in north Knoxville, 8 in NW Knoxville, 5 in west Knox., and 9 ranging from the Louisville, Friendsville, & Maryville areas.

The tour is self guided. You get a map(s)and can go to any or all of the ponds you want to and in any order. I do try to lay out a route to follow just for those who don't know the areas but you don't have to stick to it.
This runs 2 days so you can see them all, hopefully.

If anyone goes on this I would love to get feedback on the tour, ponds, brochure, mapping, etc.
We always hope to improve each year

You might even get a cold soda or snacks on your trip from hosts.

The website has been updated and we even have a way to pay online and download your brochure. Or you can purchase them at Pope's Garden Center in Maryville or Stanley's in south Knoxville.
If anyone is interested in ponds or water gardens this is a great opportunity to talk to those who have them.

This tour is coming up next weekend, July 10th & 11th.
You should also be seeing lots of advertisements coming out in the papers.
Hope to see you soon.
