If you plan to visit a park that charges an entrance fee (Glen Echo Park does not), learn about the National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Access Pass. This pass provides free entry and discounts on activities and services when you visit federal lands.

There are plenty of accessible parking spots available at both the main parking lot and the upper parking lot off of MacArthur Blvd. From either parking lot, the park is wheelchair and walker accessible.

Cognition
Material about the park's natural and cultural history, including brochures, wayside signs, and ranger-led programs are designed to engage multiple senses and learning styles, and often include audio components and/or tactile objects.

Hearing
If you are Deaf or hard of hearing and you would like to attend a ranger-led program, please contact the park ahead of time. This gives rangers an opportunity to adjust their plans to ensure good visibility or accommodate assistive technology. A ranger who signs or frequently works with American Sign Language interpreters may be assigned to your group.

Park staff are working to update trail descriptions with detailed information about surfaces, grades, and potential impediments to mobility. You are the best judge of your abilities, and good information about what to expect on trails will help you decide which ones you will enjoy most.

Park staff also mark ranger-led programs and events that may be accessible to people with mobility concerns in the calendar .

Vision
If you are blind or have low vision and you would like to attend a ranger-led program, please contact the park ahead of time.

Accessibility is a top priority for Glen Echo Park. Many of our facilities are historic and accessibility is not always ideal. However, we are always working to improve accessibility. Your comments on accessibility areas for improvement are always appreciated.
