Located in Wayne County, Tennessee, the Glenrock Picnic Area is near milemarker 364 on the Natchez Trace Parkway.

The Glenrock Picnic Area will be closed to the public until October 2007. Travel along the Parkway itself should not be affected.


Following are details about the renovations…

From the press release:

The National Park Service has begun work to replace the Natchez Trace Parkway’s existing Glenrock comfort station located near milepost 364 in Wayne County, Tennessee. The construction activities started on Monday, July 9th, and will extend through mid-October. The entire Glenrock picnic area will be closed to the public for the duration of the construction

Replacing this comfort station is another of a series of projects aimed at improving the restroom facilities along the Natchez Trace Parkway. Every effort will be made to complete the work within the ninety day construction period in order to minimize impacts to the public.

The majority of the work will take place adjacent to the Parkway, and should not impede traffic flow. However, travelers can expect to see construction personnel and equipment, and are asked to exercise caution while traveling through this area.

Questions related to this work can be directed to the Parkway’s Chief of Maintenance, Rusty Rawson, at (662) 680-4020.
