Glen Echo Park – Atop

Yesterday I went to Glen Echo Park with a photography meetup group that I belong to. Glen Echo Park, located not far from Washington, DC, in Glen Echo, MD, was first developed in 1891 as a National Chautauqua Assembly, “to promote liberal and practical education.” The Chautauqua lasted for just one season, and by the early 1900s, the site had become Glen Echo Amusement Park — the premier amusement park serving the Washington area until 1968 when it closed. These days the site hosts arts programs, but many of the art deco amusement park structures are still in place.

While I was exploring the grounds I found a spot where I could walk up a ramp to a roof and take a picture.
