This is the best month to see Life Aquatic in bloom. If you haven’t been to our local Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens – now is the time to go. This is one of the nicest parks we have in the DC metro area – and we have a lot of parks. Kenilworth National Park is our only National Park dedicated to aquatic plant and animal life.
The best time of day to go to Kenilworth is in the morning (open 9am to 5pm). I know, I know, I hate mornings too, but this is really worth it! And coming up is the Lotus and Water Lily Festival on July 16th. You can see a spectacular display of lotus and water lilies in full bloom and there are lots of activities at the park.
There is so much to see at Kenilworth Gardens… We’ve found frogs, turtles, fish, snakes, butterflies, dragonflies, praying mantis, beautiful spiders (yes, spiders!), bald eagles, egrets, herons, and more; and that’s all in addition to the beautiful lilies, lotus, hibiscus, clematis, and others!
Thank You for visiting,
P.s. What is your favorite aquatic-themed subject? Is it fishes? flowers? fowl? Where do you go to see your favorites? Let's share... maybe we'll discover a great place we hadn't known about. How fun!
