It’s time once again for our summer picnic!
This year we are at Rock Creek Park Picnic Grove #1, near the recently restored Peirce Mill.
Lunch begins at Noon, rain or shine. Adventuring provides grilled hamburgers, cheeseburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, and the standard fixins - plus assorted beverages. You bring a dish to share, and a $5 Adventuring fee to offset expenses.
The volleyball net will be set up for the ambitious; also we will once again host a “Fun Hike” and a trivia contest.
Directions: If coming down Tilden Street from Connecticut Avenue, as soon as Tilden changes from a divided to an undivided road, take the next right into the parking lot. If coming from Mt. Pleasant via Park Road, after crossing over Rock Creek, pass Peirce Mill on your right, then turn left into the parking lot. The picnic shelter is just beyond the building with restrooms.
If using navigation software: The picnic grove does not have a street address per se; use the address for Peirce Mill across the street, 2375 Tilden Street, NW. Do not enter “Rock Creek Park Picnic Grove #1” into Google Maps as your destination; it will list several locations in the park, none of which are Grove #1. If planning to arrive by Metro’s Red Line: All the usual caveats about weekend delays apply. Check Metro’s website for information. Call or e-mail Brett if you are walking, biking, or busing and need further directions.
See you there!
