  • VISIT THE PARK

    Glen Echo Park is home to a community of artists, educators, dancers, & performers who share their knowledge and expertise with more than 350,000 people each year.

    The Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture manages the arts and cultural programs and maintains the historic buildings at the Park. The Partnership office is located on the second floor of the Arcade Building (the building with the “Popcorn” sign). Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is there to assist visitors with class registrations and rentals inquiries, and to answer general questions about the Park and its programs. [NOTE: The office is no longer closed due to COVID-19. Hours are: Monday-Saturday, 10am - 4pm. Closed on Sundays.]

    If you want to drop in to do an art project with your kids, Saturday Art Explorers is open every Saturday from 10am to 1pm in the Candy Corner. [Temporarily closed due to COVID-19.] Our picnic grounds are open to the public and available for parties of less than 30 people on a first-come, first-served basis. 

    Find weather updates posted at the top of our our Operating Hours page, when applicable.
