The only way to make sure they will stay in an area is to block it in with something solid, surrounding the outside of the pond with railroad ties, landscape timbers, or something that they can't climb over or dig under. Just remember that sliders are not fully aquatic and they always need some kind of land area to get entirely out of the water on. They are quite happy to wander for surprisingly long distances on land. I've found wild ones a good mile from a suitable water source.
