A little-known spot, the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens are an easy drive (ride share/taxi). You never know what is going to be in season (www.nps.gov/keaq)!
This well-established garden has a large variety of aquatic plants. Summer Visitors check the website for peak blooms, the Lotus Flowers are glorious when in full bloom.
We absolutely love seeing these water lilies in this park. It is very remote but people have bike/drive there. Those water lilies are hugeeee!
You can bike here easily, using the new, wonderful, well-marked Anacostia River bike path, and you should!
Really special when the water lilies and lotus are in bloom in mid to end of July.
Every July they host a Lotus and Lily Festival that is amazing! Little known gem in DC.
Visitors and nature lovers from all over come to visit this rare type of park. Peaceful walk and rejuvenating place where you can get amazing views of the water along the boardwalk, see turtles, deer, rare birds, heron, ducklings, etc. Beautiful lotuses and lillies when in bloom. This place…
Top destination for plant lovers. Aquatic plants are aplenty, as the gardens are the only national park dedicated to the growth and study of water-based plant life. Voyagers will find thousands of lotuses, water lilies and hyacinths as they wade through this oasis, which includes 45 ponds.

“The National Arboretum is an urban oasis hidden away in the NE corner of the city, only a half mile away! Supreme Core Cider is a great place to stop for a drink before or after!”

“Don't underestimate Panda Gourmet if you like authentic Xi'an (northwest style Chinese) food. This is nowhere near Chinatown, but there's a reason it welcomes travelers into the city on NY Ave.”
