Trip Advisor Excellent Wedding Venue

My family just attended a wedding a Glen Echo Park. What a beautiful venue for a wedding. We were given tickets to ride the carousel and this was enjoyed by adults and children alike. If you stop and listen, you can almost hear the sounds of all the people who've been entertained in this park over the years. The National Park Service has done an amazing job maintaining this beautiful piece of history.



Trip Advisor Time stands still at Glen Echo Park

We went to visit Clara Barton National Historic Site and visited Glen Echo while we were there. The park looks like it belongs in the roaring twenties with the art deco theme. There are several buildings in the park but they look like they're seldom used. The best part of the park is the Merry go round.



Trip Advisor I remember when it was .....

...an amusement park. The roller coaster and the pool were why we came. My father used to run streetcars to the park. Nice place to take kids now with the Adventure Theater. Dancing in the Spanish Ballroom is always a good idea. Although the ballroom is NOT Air Conditioned. It does get hot in there.



Trip Advisor Fun for All

Glen Echo Park is a lovely place to spend an afternoon. My friends and I have seen 2 puppet shows (the Puppet Co.) and they've been delightful. The carousel is absolutely beautiful and it's fun to ride. I've eaten delicious food in the cafe and enjoyed visiting the artists' studios as well. The house of Clara Barton, the Red Cross founder, is interesting to tour (free). A great place for adults and children.
