April at Kenilworth

Spring has sprung at Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens! The osprey have returned as well as the great white egrets. Turtles are sunning themselves on warm days and frogs are leaping into the ponds as you walk by. The lilies are starting to peak out of the water. We should have some lilies blooming by the end of the month, with May being a great time to see many lilies. Come out and enjoy some warmer weather today!
