Rock Creek Park » Phase 2 Fee Increases for Group Picnic Areas at Rock Creek Park and Fort Dupont Park » Document List
The reservation fee for a group picnic area had not changed since the early 1990's. In late 2013, the NPS proposed to bring the fee in line with the price for similar group picnic areas in the Washington Metropolitan Area, and provide options for full-day and half-day rentals. The proposal was to phase this increase over the next 3 years starting in the summer of 2014 with an increase to $25/half day. The NPS is now preparing to implement the second phase increase January 1, 2015, at $45/half day, followed by the third phase in 2016 at $65/half day. The additional revenue will improve the condition of the picnic areas and the level of service provided to visitors.
We would like to hear your thoughts.
