Series 22: Flowers and Families: The Stories of the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, 2019

Identifier: dcpl_dcohc022

Scope and Contents

Friends of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens initiated this oral history project to share the park’s history and its modern story. The project attempted to answer questions such as: What does the park mean to Ward 7 residents? What memories do Ward 7 residents have of it? How has it changed in the last few decades? How does it relate to a larger discussion of the significance of green spaces? The answers to these questions were meant to add to the established narrative of the park’s creation to produce a more complete history.
