About Us

Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens (FoKAG) was founded in 2001 by a small group of volunteers enthralled by the park’s unique beauty and place in DC history. Keenly aware of the enormous task of maintaining the park, FoKAG works in cooperation with the National Park Service to ensure the park is well-maintained, well-enjoyed and welcoming for neighbors and visitors. 

FoKAG is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that connects people to the park through stewardship, engagement and educational programs. We envision an aquatic gardens that inspires. 

The Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens celebrates and protects this special place by:

  • Engaging volunteers
  • Enhancing park infrastructure
  • Supporting educational and interpretive programs
  • Building community partnerships
  • Fundraising for special park initiatives
