September in Kenilworth
This is one of the last remaining lotus flowers in bloom, however there is a lot to see at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens as we transition into the cooler weather. The lilies are still in bloom and should be visible until mid October. Fall warblers are migrating through our area and the leaves are starting to change color. Deer, turtles, muskrats, frogs, herons and beavers are all active this time of year. We are proud to welcome a visiting art exhibit sponsored by the Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens through October. Come out and visit!
Final Bloom Report July 28, 2021We are past full bloom, but the lotus flowers and lilies are still very beautiful! There will still be plenty of flowers to see until mid-August, and then they will really taper off. The best time to visit is in the mornings as the flowers are wide open and the temperatures are more pleasant!
We also have wonderful hibisucus flowers and plenty of wildlife to enjoy as well!
Bloom Report for July 21, 2021
Over the weekend the park hit "peak bloom." Although peak bloom has past, there are plenty of lotus and lily flowers left that are still flowering to enjoy. Weekday mornings continue to be the best time to visit due to crowds and temperatures.
