Kayak to the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens Marsh

About Kayak to the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens Marsh

Easy five-mile round trip suitable for all levels of kayakers.

Kayak with CHV on the beautiful Anacostia River from the Bladensburg Waterfront Park (4601 Annapolis Road, Bladensburg, Md. 20710) to Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens Marsh. The Park will supply all kayaks (or you can canoe); single or tandem, paddles and life vests for a modest rental of $20 for the day for all paddlers over 60! Along the two-hour trip we will see turtles, water fowl, blue herons, hawks as well as water lilies and other vegetation.

We plan to meet at Bladensburg Waterfront Park Office at 9:45 am, kayak to Kenilworth Gardens Aquatic Marsh and return by noon. We can bring lunches and picnic in the lovely Pavilion after our trip.

IMPORTANT: In addition to registering here, you must reserve your kayak or canoe on the Bladensburg Waterfront Park website, beginning 14 days before the trip. Reservations close at 12 noon the day before the rental. Walk-up rentals are possible assuming a boat is available. Call 301-779-0371 for more information

Carpooling will be available. And you are also welcome to bring your own kayak if you prefer.
