Exploring Urban Parks with the National Park Foundation

January 05, 2023

Thanks to the hard work of an incredible group of organizations, including the National Park Foundation and Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, we are very excited to share an update on our most recent work with the Kenilworth Park & AquaticGardens WELLderness program. This park is located in Washington, DC, and constitutes approximately 700 acres, and is the only National Park Service sitedevoted to the propagation and display of aquatic plants. This program is a direct response to the needs of Kenilworth’s neighboring urban community who sought to connect in the park through outdoor events and opportunities for healing with neighbors and visitors. In the event series, community members have engaged in activities such as dog walks, tai chi, forest bathing, art therapy, painting, photography, and kayaking. “We want more folks than ever to be in the park engaging with the green space,” says Shannah Cumberbatch, Volunteer and Program Coordinator, Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens.
