Class is in session! Trade Zoom calls for the rustle of leaves. Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, your National Park, is a great outdoor classroom, providing a much-needed break from indoor learning.

Our approach to learning is just as much about teaching as it is about providing life experiences. Students use park resources to understand basic concepts that will help them succeed in school and life.
