Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in helping the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens! Volunteers are a crucial component in the operation of this special place. Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens offers a wide range of stewardship and interpretive volunteer opportunities. 

Our stewardship volunteers help maintain the ponds and keep the park beautiful for visitors. Our Park Ambassador volunteers help visitors develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the park history and native flora and fauna. You can volunteer as an individual or as part of a group. 

Volunteering at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is a great way to meet others, as well as a fun and rewarding way to spend the day. We encourage you to share photos of your volunteer experience at Kenilworth. Please tag @kenaqgardens on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter and use #dclilyponds #volunteer and #findyourpark.
