The pond tour map is $15 per family and includes all four days. If you would like to purchase a map, you may visit one of the vendors listed on our website or just call us directly.
We will accept credit card purchases via phone or email and will mail the pond tour map to you. Please call 312-409-2081 or email Charlene at Charlene@mpks.org.
Our members look forward to you visiting their lovely backyard ponds and sharing their vision with you.

1-14-14 Pond construction this year? Call 811, the hotline for JULIE (Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators). Call no more than two weeks, but at least 48 hours, before you begin digging (not including weekends and holidays). Utilities will then mark their underground pipes, wires and cables with stakes, flags or paint.
