Description:

What an oasis in such proximity of DC! It's strikingly beautiful when the lotuses bloom mid-summer . It is a phenomenon not to be missed. It's also lovely, but in a stark way, in the winter. Another way to enjoy the park: I love renting kayaks upstream at Bladensburg State Park, heading down to Kenilworth, and paddling through the tidal marshes and narrow water trails during high tide (~$20 for the entire day, vs. the same amount per hour in Georgetown). If you're feeling brave, duck and paddle right under the bridges to check out more parts of the park. And do check the tide before going, unless you fancy getting stuck in the mud -- I usually just google "tide charts Potomac," choose the closest area to that part of DC, and plan to hit the water an hour or two before high tide.
