“Something for everyone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

You must first check the programming at Glen Echo Park for the time and day you want to go. The options include children's programs; popular dance events ( I.e. Salsa, swing, etc); crafts, photography and art classes and shows; all kinds of musical performances; and the always popular antique merry-go-round. The grounds and all the buildings have been renovated to its original Art Deco style at this National Park Service site.

“Great playground for kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a fabulous park for kids. Two great things - it's shady, so in the summer it's always very pleasant no matter how hot it is. Second, it's never a problem to get spots in the adjacent parking lot. There are lots of things to climb on for kids of all ages. Also are ample picnic tables in the center of the playground area for convenient lunch and snacks. Restroom are nearby too -- real toilets, not port-a-johns, although not exactly pristine. There is also the train ride which is always fun too.

“Great facility!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

My adult daughter and I went here today for my office pig roast. The facility is very nice, has a train ride for little people, picnic areas for rent (we rented 2) and lots of space! Dogs & kids were visiting with their parents by the droves but in waves. They constantly come in but are also constantly leaving.

“Decent park in the middle of town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Not a bad park for being right in the middle of Bethesda. Plenty of things for kids to play on. The best part of it (to us) is the dog park. Lots of room for the pups to run around and play. I'm sure the train is a big attraction to kids.

“No Train Today...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

We quickly got over the news that the Train was not running this morning - weekday service ended with the start of school... with a bright sunny day and so many park play areas to explore, no two to five year old could have more than a thirty second disappointment! Cabin John is a fine example of taxpayer money very well spent! Bravo Montgomery County, our grand-child adores this park!
