About Kiwanis Park
Kiwanis Park officially opened on April 30, 2016 and is nestled along Antietam Creek in Hagerstown, MD. It is accessible by community members as a place to quietly observe nature, including monarchs, other butterflies and pollinators at the Monarch Waystation at the park. In addition, the community can enjoy kayaking and birdwatching. The Historic Trust of Washington County plans to save the historic stone house on the property.
Monarch butterflies need milkweed for the species to survive and thrive. Throughout the year, The Monarch Alliance holds community monarch programs where people can learn about the monarchs’ life cycle and its amazing migration.
You can visit the Kiwanis Park Monarch Waystation to learn the different types of pollinator plants that you can plant in your own garden, or simply follow the list outlined here.
