Glen Echo Carousel Reopens Tomorrow
The Dentzel Carousel at Glen Echo Park will be reopening this Saturday, May 1st at noon. The carousel was installed in the park in 1921 and underwent a complete restoration between 1983 and 2003.
Due to COVID restrictions, their policies and precautions have been modified this year. Tickets and details are available here.
The carousel has been closed since the summer of 2019 due to repairs and remained closed in 2020 because of the pandemic.
“Considered one of the most beautiful carousels in the United States, the Glen Echo Park ride was installed in 1921 by the Dentzel Carousel Company of Germantown, Pennsylvania. The carousel is one of only 135 functioning antique carousels in the country and one of the few still in its original location. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the carousel is truly a Washington area treasure!”
