Kenilworth Park & Aquatic Gardens cover approximately 700 acres and are also part of the Anacostia Park. Plans for the park were originally discussed in 1791 as part of the L'Enfant Plan, and then in 1901 the Park was extended as part of the McMillan Plan. These are the only gardens within the National Park Service that are specifically devoted to the display of aquatic plants.
