 Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens 

Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is the only national park devoted to cultivated water-loving plants. This unique habitat, featuring exotic water lilies and lotus, is an oasis for nature lovers, a haven for walkers, hikers, photographers and birdwatchers and a living laboratory for students of all ages.

The marshes along the Anacostia River have a rich and varied natural and cultural history. From the Nacotchtank Indians to early American settlers, to contemporary African American communities, the area we now know as Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens has been home to a variety of people for more than 4,000 years.

Join us to explore, volunteer, celebrate and support this park.
