Spend a Beautiful Day Exploring the Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens

March 1st, 2019

If you’re looking for some relief from the dreary winter weather, check out the Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens. This natural area of Anacostia Park was founded by an act of Congress in 1926 to preserve forests, land and water in Washington, DC, and today, it’s an inspiring place to admire different types of plants and wildlife in the area. 

Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens features stunning ponds covered in lily pads, lush trees and flowering bushes come summertime, but in the winter, it’s just as beautiful to admire. You’ll see how the leaves change and the wildlife adapt to the colder season, and it’s a peaceful and serene place for a stroll any time of the year. The Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the winter months and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the warmer months, so plan your visit accordingly.
