One of the buildings at Glen Echo park. The amusement park closed in 1968. In 1971, the National Park Service collaborated with artists and arts organizations to create an art enrichment program. Today, the park is host to many resident arts and cultural organizations, artist studios, a thriving social dance program, a restored carousel, and numerous classes in visual and performing arts.
