Pond and Garden Tour returning this summer

The annual Green River Pond and Garden Tour is returning once again this year, and is continuing to expand and showcase even more gardens in Sweetwater County.

This year, the tour will cover homes in Green River, Rock Springs, and, for the first time, in Reliance as well.

A Master Gardener will be on hand, ready to answer questions about growing and maintaining gardens in Wyoming.

"If you are new to Sweetwater County and looking for gardening ideas or backyard ponds this event is for you," Lyneen Murphy, the tour organizer, said.

The tour is also a popular event for residents who have lived in Sweetwater County for years and simply enjoy seeing the ponds and gardens on display and meeting like-minded neighbors to share a love of gardening with.

"It's just the interaction with the community that I believe everybody is drawn to," Murphy said of the tour in the past.

Tour guides will be available two weeks prior at GR Chambers and Riverside Nursery.

You will also find guide information on the Green River Pond and Garden Facebook page or website. 

The 2024 Green River Pond and Garden Tour is scheduled for Saturday, August 3. Garden gates will open at 9 a.m. and close at 3 p.m. The tour is self-guided and free to the public. 

If you are interested in joining this year's tour, you can contact Lyneen Murphy at lyneen@hotmail.com or (307) 871-2003.
