GLEN ECHO PARK
For over 100 years, Glen Echo Park has been a place for people to learn and enjoy vibrant artistic, cultural, and educational programs. Glen Echo Park is famous for its Chautauqua, a Protestant movement to democratize learning and spread culture from the well-to-do to the masses, an amusement park early in the 20th century the area was redeveloped as a trolley park, and in 1971 became a national park to preserve the arts and culture.
