Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts
Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts is the only National Park dedicated to the performing arts. Performance structures on the 130 acre property include a 7,000-person main stage. The park includes protected stream, meadow, and forest patches in the urban Washington, DC landscape. Noise from the Dulles Toll Road threatens the primary function of the park as a performance venue and is a major management concern. Water quality degradation, exotic species introductions, deer overabundance, and the encroachment of development against park boundaries are also issues of concern.
