The Pondside Garden

This small pond is used as a setting for water's-edge, shallow-water plants and hosts a number of fish. Pond construction was accomplished through a “Build a Pond” day hosted by the Wilson County Green Association.  The garden is also home to “Dancing Cranes”, a metal sculpture from artist Clifton May.
