Friends of Kenilworth

Hiking, birding, photography, painting, and more are possible within the confines of Kenilworths historical landscape. The trails are short ranging from 1/3 mile to 1/2 mile, going in a loop. There are benches to enjoy the views that invite you to linger or just have a small picnic so you can relax while a friend is photographing lotus, cooking is prohibited however. Birding is excellent all year. Many visitors come by canoe to explore the marsh. If you're looking to bring your best friend, dogs are allowed in the park, but must be on a leash at all times.
