The Spruce Run park is a popular destination; In the summers, especially on weekends, the park fills up. After a limit they close the park to additional visitors. Cops direct additional traffic to other parks. But that does not mean attendees of the group picnic are also locked out. For us, the park has sent us “parking passes” which if shown to the cops would allow the car into the park. We spoke to the park rangers, and he said that if you tell the cops that you are with the group picnic they will let you in. Passes are additional insurance.
