“from amusement park to national park!”

Glen Echo Park is a magical place situated on the Potomac palisades near Bethesda, Maryland. Originally a Chautauqua retreat, then an amusement park, this National Park now presents vibrant arts and cultural programs. Take a class in pottery, painting, photography, or art glass... music, silversmithing, or textiles. Enjoy a puppet show or theater performance with your kids and ride the historic Dentzelcarousel. Attend a dance featuring live music in our exquisite Spanish Ballroom or refine your steps in one of our dance classes. Learn more about the environment while you play, or take a ranger-guided historic tour. It's all here at Glen Echo Park.

The art deco neon sign is so iconic! The park was originally built to attract people to live in a suburban neighborhood some real estate developers wanted to build, and after it went bankrupt it became an amusement park, which operated until the 60's. It's really awesome that it was saved before being bulldozed, and you can still visit today. Don't miss out on the vintage carousel!
