PARK SERVICE REQUESTS

We are guests of Gunpowder Falls State Park and the Friends of Jerusalem Mill, a group who has worked tirelessly for many years to restore the mill village and maintain the park grounds. They have asked me to communicate this to you, your athletes and spectators if it pertains to them:

For participants not arriving by bus and parent not staying at the meet: Please drop off participants in the parking circle in front of the Grist Mill/Headquarters.

DO NOT STOP ON, OR ALONGSIDE JERUSALEM OR JERICHO ROAD – This is unsafe.

The following address will take you to the Grist Mill and park in any mapping ap:

Then the athlete should cross Jerusalem Rd via the cross walk from the mill to the black smith shop and proceed to the team areas.

When walking around the village or warming up: Please use the designated crosswalks only when crossing Jerusalem Road. Please respect the guidance of the Harford County Deputy Sheriffs and other volunteers.

Please do not warm up or cooldown along the roads as they do not have shoulders there are many trails and a small field not used for the course that these can be done on.
