Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens - National Park Service

JUNE 2008

Kenilworth Park is maintained by the National Park Service (NPS) and is located on the Anacostia River in SE Washington DC. It is a combination of land, water and marsh, which holds many lily and lotus ponds. This is another gem found literally across the river from the US Capital. The location is so peaceful, full of aquatic wildlife and nature, that if you were placed here you would not believe you were within the confines of Washington DC. Photographers have found this to be a special place to come and see water lilies and lotus flowers blooming in June. Bees and dragonflies dart among the flowers offering dramatic effects.

This is one of two spring trips prior to the lotus blooming.
