    The Friends of Gwynns Falls Leakin Park are very grateful to Jon Merryman for organizing a massive clean up in GFLP along Windsor Mill Road and the Gwynns Falls Stream. Others who joined in the effort included the Eco Warriors from Carroll County, FoGFLP volunteers, and other local trash pickers.  Bravo to our fellow park lovers, supporters, and passionate advocates who care so much about protecting our green spaces.  Check out our gallery for more photos of the day.

    On a mild fall Tuesday a hearty crew of FoGLFP volunteers planted 10  smaller trees at the top of Winans Meadow, and another 6 just off of the Gwynns Falls Trail near the switch backs.  The larger trees were planted by Baltimore Tree Trust down in the meadow on the right as you are taking the path up to the pavilion.

    About 23 volunteers came out on a crisp MLK Day for trash clearing on the Dead Run and Gwynns Falls Trail.  In addition to netting 17 large bags of trash, there was also significant cutting back of invasive rose bushes along the trail.  Way to go TEAM!

    Morning commuters of Thursday, Jan 16th who were passing through the park on Franklintown Rd saw an Old Faithful-sized geyser from a water main break in Dead Run just before it flows into Gwynns Falls (at the bottom of Wetheredsville Road).  As the morning wore on, the hole had gotten larger, or pressure had eased, making for a shorter spout. 

    This portion of the pipeline runs along and underneath the stream bed.  An emergency utility crew brought in heavy equipment to dig a clearing underneath the pipeline in order to get a temporary sleeve patch in place.  We understand a more thorough repair is being planned.
