• Glen Echo Picnic Area


    Everyone is welcome at our picnic and playground area!  

    The picnic grove and our playground are perfect spots to swing by (pun intended!) after a show at the Puppet Co. or Adventure Theatre or on a beautiful spring day when the daffodils are out in force in the Park.

    Picnic tables are available to groups of 30 people or less on a first-come, first-served 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 our Rentals Manager at (301) 634-2233.
