Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens

This natural area of Anacostia Park has its origins in a 1926 Act of Congress, and is the only aquatic garden to be preserved by the Natural Park Service. It is home to a variety of birds, reptiles, and amphibians; freshwater plants and wildflowers grow on the marsh and ponds. Visitors can walk a boardwalk trail through the aquatic vegetation, hike on a dirt path, and watch for shorebirds wading and hunting for food. Ranger-led tours are available, as are resources for self-guided visits.

Botanical Garden Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

The diverse world of plants is perhaps the weirdest, and most fascinating, of all living things. Bamboo can grow over three feet in one day (you can literally watch it grow). There are 600 species of carnivorous plants, which trap and digest insects, frogs, or small birds (if a vegetarian eats this plant, are they still a vegetarian?). The world’s largest flower, Rafflesia, can grow up to three feet in diameter (how big would a bouquet be…). Do a little digging on your next trip to a botanical garden (not literally!), and see what interesting plant facts you can find.
