Through the Lens of the Past: Performing Arts
Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts
Established in 1966, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts became the first and only National Park for the performing arts. The park is home to several amphitheaters (one with 7,000 seats!) used for a range of musical, comedic, and artistic performances. Wolf Trap also boasts 65 acres of natural woodland, streams and wetlands that are home to a host of wildlife and plants, preserving a natural environment in urbanized northern Virginia. The promise of the park is to provide opportunities to experience live performances, related educational programs, and associated recreation in a pastoral setting within the National Capital area.
