Welcome to the

Austin Pond Society

Who we are

Our organization is composed of people from all walks of life and all ages who are interested in backyard ponds and related items: fountains, waterfalls, koi, goldfish, plants and all of the things that it takes to create a little bit of paradise in your own backyard.  

This organization of water gardening enthusiasts meets at the Zilker Botanical Garden Clubhouse in Austin at 6:30 on the third Monday of each month, every month except December. We normally have a light snack and drinks available.  We also have speakers, special member events, volunteer opportunities and parties throughout the year.  Feel free to come to our meetings; we'd love to meet you and help answer any water gardening, ponding or fish questions you may have!
