Dear PoPville,

This place is amazing. I didn’t think to take pictures, but it was perfect for the intimate jazz show this morning, great for families or a date, even a picnic. Just past the arboretum through a neighborhood off kenilworth ave.

More info on Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens here. It is awesome! Late June/early July are said to be best times for viewing the lotus flowers. Directions for how to get there are here.

    Completely agree. One of my favorites places in the area. It’s worth the long walk from the metro to be surrounded by all the greenery.

    Maybe one of the reasons no one knows about it is because their photo gallery has nothing in it but pastel paintings?

    Who supervises that web site?

      everyone i know knows about it.

    I didn’t know about it for years and went with a friend who has been here so often we could skip the usual tourist spots. It was lovely – though a bit hard to get to/find.

      Easy to get to from where I live! I’m always afraid to bring other people there because I don’t know for sure if the lotus flowers will be blooming. Wish there was some way of finding out before going.
