Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens provides an extraordinary space for outdoor exploration and learning with over 30 individual ponds teeming with exotic water lilies and lotus, as well as frogs, turtles, fish, dragonflies, butterflies, and more.
The tidal marsh, enjoyed by walking (or skipping!) along a long boardwalk, is fed by the waters of the Anacostia River and experiences a three foot fluctuation in water level daily. This unique park provides opportunities to learn about the tidal marsh ecosystem and connects kids and adults to the Chesapeake Bay watershed in a hands-on way.
Our intensive three-week summer camp (formerly known as NatureFest) is a neighborhood and park-based camp that provides safe, high-quality programming when parents and caregivers need it most. Find out more about summer camp.
