Clarice Smith Performance Arts Center
I am now taking my daughter to a Music Together class on Sunday mornings at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland College Park. There is a locker room right by the dance studio that we usually use to change her and it works well because there is a bench we use as a changing table. But, this last Sunday we were in the main lobby and I check in to other bathrooms (men's) and there was no changing tables. Again, I am always surprised when a newer building that serves a large range of people use doesn't put in changing tables in the men's bathrooms - maybe there are none in the women's' bathrooms either, but I, obviously, didn't check. I really like the center as it presents some wonderful performances and does a fair amount of stuff to engage the local community, but it aggregating that it doesn't supply appropriate facilities to families that might be coming to it performances and activities.
