We ask park visitors to practice social distancing, and if unable to maintain a 6-foot distance, to please wear a face mask.  Although the buildings are not open, park grounds and trails are OPEN. Portable restrooms are available in the parking lot.

In addition, the Friends of Jerusalem Mill has canceled all events for the rest of 2020. Parking is limited and overflow parking is closed per park management direction.  Please consider carpooling and park only in designated spots, not along the roadway.
