Aquascape Designs Pond Tour

Aquascape Designs offers free, self-guided pond tours throughout Chicagoland this summer. Each pond tour showcases the use of unique water features in a variety of outdoor settings, from ecosystem ponds to waterfalls and fountains. The tour is geographically centered around “pond central,” a feature stop where free refreshments are served and professional staff are onsite to answer any questions about water gardening.

“A variety of pond tours throughout the summer makes it easy for attendees to enjoy a tour that’s conducive to their schedule,” states Brian Helfrich, construction manager for Aquascape Designs. “The casual, party atmosphere at our ‘pond central’ location provides opportunity for people to experience the water garden lifestyle first-hand while enjoying snacks and talking to experts in the industry. We’re excited to be able to answer any questions participants might have in this relaxed setting.”

The pond tour format is flexible to accommodate busy schedules. The free, self-guided tours can be taken any time from 10 am to 5 pm on the specified dates. Geographic location and dates for each of the remaining pond tours this summer are as follows:

June 16th – Downers Grove area
July 21st – Glen Ellyn/Wheaton area
August 18th – Elgin area
September 15th – Sugar Grove area

Tour maps for each area will be made available at Pond locations will only be open for viewing during the designated times. For more information, log onto or call 630.659.2057.
