History Of Lily Ponds
100 years ago, the land that is now Kenilworth Park and The Aquatic Gardens, was the property of Civil War veteran Walter B. Shaw. Fond of waterlilies from his home state of Maine, he planted some on his property. The lilies became popular and Walter B. Shaw brought in more plants, and turned it into a business called “W.B. Shaw Lily Ponds.” After Shaw died, the gardens were maintained by his daughter, Helen, but declined and faced foreclosure in the 1930s. Helen worked to save the gardens and convinced Congress to pay to add the gardens to the National Park Service, now Anacostia Park.
