Positive: Washington, D.C. hidden gem ready to shine as Lotus and Water Lily Festival begins

Every spring, millions of tourists and locals alike flock to see Washington, D.C.’s cherry blossoms in full bloom. But there’s another national park tucked away in a corner of D.C. that offers spectacular blossoms over acres of gardens, and that’s the Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens — the only U.S. national park dedicated to aquatic gardens. July is when the aquatic gardens shine. And this weekend [15 July], the park will kick off the Lotus and Water Lily Festival, a weeklong event featuring hands-on activities for the kids, gardening demonstrations for the grown-ups, and natural beauty on display for everyone. Visitors from all over the world come to see the exotic water lilies and lotus plants.
