 Leggett Calls on the National Park Service to Reopen Glen Echo Park

Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett (center) called on the National Park Service (NPS) to reopen Glen Echo Park despite the County’s offers to take responsibility for grounds maintenance and security, the functions that NPS currently performs. If NPS does not take the County up on its offer by Thursday evening, Leggett said the County itself would reopen the facility on Friday. Joining Leggett were Montgomery County Councilmember Roger Berliner (to right of Leggett), Glen Echo Partnership for Arts and Culture Executive Director Katey Boerner (not pictured) and some Glen Echo performers and artists who have been locked out of the facility.
