This is a 1 - 3 mile pleasant walk. Washington’s world-famous cherry blossoms seem downright drab next to the lesser-known, big and brazen lotus flowers at Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens. Each summer these pink and white beauties—with flowers up to a whopping 10 inches in diameter—light up 2 to 3 acres of ponds. The flowers’ stalks can reach 6 feet tall, and their umbrella-like leaves can stretch more than 2 feet wide. Kenilworth is the largest public lotus garden in the nation, experts say. Historically known for its water lilies, these days Kenilworth’s jaw-dropping lotuses grab center stage. This former commercial aquatic garden was acquired by the federal government in 1938. As the only national park established to propagate and display water plants, Kenilworth grows more than 35 varieties of tropical and hardy water lilies and several varieties of lotuses. They thrive in 45 ponds and several display pools in the 8.5-acre historic aquatic garden ensconced in a 75-acre wetland.
