Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is a place of natural beauty that is a favorite destination for amateur and professional photographers alike.

Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens proudly offers an annual photography contest to celebrate the best images captured at the park. The competition challenges photographers to experience, explore, and capture the natural beauty of our lily and lotus ponds, tidal marshes, nature trails, and wildlife.
