This two-hour walking tour combines the best of city life and wildlife. You’ll begin by walking through the 1950s neighborhood Eastland Gardens and past historic 1930s apartment buildings. Your knowledgeable guide can tell you about the history of this area and point out interesting features as you follow the east bank of the Anacostia River. The Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is the only U.S. National Park devoted to aquatic plants. Started as a hobby for a government worker in the late 19th century, the Gardens have blossomed into one of the most beautiful – and least visited – spots in Washington. Enjoy the beautiful water lilies and stroll the boardwalk over river wetlands, looking out for herons and dragonflies. July is peak time for blooming water lilies.
