Walnut Gardens HOA
General Info – Neighborhood Carnival October 31st – Halloween

The event runs 11:00am – 2:00pm on Saturday, October 31st. The event is for homeowners and families of Walnut Gardens Subdivision.

The location of the event is on Roundabout Lane. It’s important to note that Roundabout Lane will be CLOSED. We will have a street closure permit from the City of Memphis. This means no traffic will be allowed in or out of Roundabout Lane. Homeowners living on Roundabout Lane need to park their vehicles on Walnut Gardens or Ivy League Lane if they have to come and go during this time period. Letters will be sent to homeowners residing on Roundabout Lane reminding them of this.

The check in point will be at the corner of Roundabout Lane and Ivy League Lane. You and your family will sign in and you will be issued wristbands. You be given the opportunity to vote on the speed bump initiative at this as well (if you have not done so already).

We need volunteers to assist with set up, decorations and clean up. If you can assist please send an email to WalnutGardensCordova. Any questions, please let us know.

Disaster Preparedness

Tornados, floods, storms, earthquakes and the like can strike at any time. It’s best to be prepared for any disaster. Everyone probably has talked to their family about what to do in the event of an emergency. What are you doing to protect your home or even your neighborhood? Imagine a scenario where we have to protect our homes from looters, crime and other evil things. Imagine if your house is destroyed and you need a safe place. It’s actually quite daunting how poorly prepared we all are.

If you would like to participate in developing a disaster preparedness plan for Walnut Gardens, send us an email to WalnutGardensCordova with your contact info.

Walnut Gardens – No Soliciting Policy

Over the years, numerous people have inquired about the No Soliciting sign at the front entry. Walnut Gardens is a no soliciting neighborhood. This means no one, NO ONE, can knock on your door trying to sell you magazines, home repairs, landscaping, mowing, etc. NO ONE can put literature on your mailbox, doors or in your driveway. There are NO exceptions.

A popular excuse I hear is that the solicitor was invited into the neighborhood by a fellow homeowner. This is a LIE. If someone is doing work on your property, they ARE NOT allowed to go around the neighborhood soliciting more work. The HOA will never grant permission for anyone trying to go door to door.

By having the sign posted at the front, this lets everyone know that we don’t allow solicitors and it aids in the prosecution of the offender. It’s a Class C Misdemeanor.

If you encounter a solicitor, you can politely tell them to leave the neighborhood. Likewise, you have every right to call the police and report this activity (901) 545-COPS.

Any questions or concerns, feel free to email us – WalnutGardensCordova@gmail.com.

There are numerous tabs at the top of the page and useless links throughout. Have a project that you need to get HOA approval on? You can submit the architectural design for, directly from this site. No printer is needed. Just fill in the form and click send. Curious about the HOA rules and what you can and can’t do? There is an HOA Covenants tab that opens up to reveal our CCR’s (covenants conditions and restrictions). You are bound by these rules. No one is exempt. You agreed to it when you bought your house.

You can email us directly from the site, or you can remember the simple email address – WalnutGardensCordova@gmail.com.

There are some very good links and phone numbers under the Useful Links tab.

Under the Board tab, it lists all the contact information for the 2015 HOA board members. Feel free to contact us with any concern you may have.
