The park features forty-five artificial aquatic ponds that showcase lilies and lotus flowers, both native species and species from around the world. In addition, the ponds provide habitat for animals, such as fish, muskrats, turtles, and frogs. Beyond the ponds, walk the River Trail and the boardwalk through the wetlands to observe plant and animal life, such as the great blue heron, which thrives in this wetland. The park has a small visitor center where you can talk with a ranger, read interpretive signs, buy books to expand your child’s curiosity, and view paintings of lilies by the former landowner. The River Trail is 1.4 miles out and back on a peninsula between the Anacostia River and its wetlands. The trail is wide and shady with a combination of grass-covered and crushed stone surfaces. Within 100 feet, there is a vernal pool on the right created by flooding of the Anacostia. At this spot and others along the trail, play “I Spy” for evidence of beavers. Kids may notice the telltale pencil point of a small tree trunk or the removal of large sections of bark and cambia on the lower trunks of larger trees. The beavers have been busy with this tree!
