National Park Service seeks public comments on Environmental Assessment for Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts Management Plan
The National Park Service (NPS) in cooperation with the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, invites public review of the Environmental Assessment (EA) and Assessment of Effect for improvements to Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. To better meet the needs of current and future visitors, we've proposed several changes to the park's general management plan—the plan that guides park management decisions. You're invited to submit your feedback from Nov. 18 through Dec. 30.
Since 1971, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts has provided opportunities to experience live performances, learn about music and theater, and explore nature. The proposed improvements would improve the visitor experience while continuing to preserve the history, landscape and resources of the only national park established as a performing arts venue. This EA would amend the Park's 1997 General Management Plan.
The amendment to the general management plan would allow the park to:
- Update Filene Center amenities to meet current industry standards.
- Improve traffic flow, parking, and pedestrian circulation.
- Improve accessibility for visitors with disabilities throughout the park.
- Improve security.
- Build, update or replace facilities including concession stands and restrooms.
- Add directional and wayfinding signs.
- Expand opportunities for year-round park use.
Public participation is vital to the planning process. You are invited to review the EA and provide comments from Nov. 18 through Dec. 30. There are several ways to get involved.
