"Fun is where you find it!"
Glen Echo Park began in 1891 as a National Chautauqua Assembly "to promote liberal and practical education." By 1911, it transformed into DC's premier amusement park until it closed in 1968. Since 1971, the National Park Service has owned and operated the site with the help of the Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture and offers year-round cultural and recreational activities.
