This year, we are again coordinating our tour with the Colorado Water Garden Society. The tour will feature ponds from the Colorado Water Garden Society and Rocky Mountain Koi Club in Southwest Littleton, Lakewood and Denver. The tour will picnic, which begins at 4:00 pm at Hudson Gardens.
The RMKC is a non-profit organization with over 200 members. It is a great place to share ideas and get to know other people that share this hobby. Membership gives you a subscription to our monthly newsletter which contains advertisements, free classified ads for members, informative articles, and information about upcoming and past events.
Our annual tour is self-guided. The ponds can be visited in any order however we have tried to arrange the tour maps in a convenient way so you can follow them in order no matter where you start. The tour is from 10am until 3:30pm. Please respect these time limits and only visit homes between these hours.
The pond owners deserve our deepest thanks for making their properties available to us. Please respect their property and their privacy. We ask that you do not request the use of their bathroom facilities. Please watch your step at the homes. Many times flowers and other garden items can be trampled if we are not careful. Make sure children are supervised at all times. This is important for their safety as well as to make sure that the pond and gardens are not damaged.
Ask as many questions about their ponds, filtration, plants, fish, etc. as you’d like. This can be a great learning opportunity as well as inspiration for new ideas for your ponds.
Please meet us at the Pond Tour Picnic Saturday evening. The picnic starts at 4:00pm (at the end of the tour). There is a charge of $4.00 for the picnic. We will provide hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, bratwursts, side dishes, drinks, and dessert. Children under 12 are free. Your picnic ticket also buys you a ticket for door prizes, which will include a range of plants and maybe a few other items. Hope to see you there.
