Playground and Picnic Area
Everyone is welcome at our playground and picnic area!
Our newly redesigned playground is the perfect place to enjoy a sunny afternoon! Adult supervision is required at all times.
The picnic grove has been a site for picnicking since the park's beginnings back in 1891. You too can continue this long-standing tradition! Picnic tables are available to groups of 30 people or less on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note, in the event of rain, the picnic tables are not covered. Larger groups, or groups wishing to rent indoor or covered space, should call the Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture Rentals Manager at 301-634-2233.
