Information to know ahead of time
We will meet in the parking lot of the Atlantis Waterpark within Bull Run Regional Park.
Bull Run Regional Park is located at 7700 Bull Run Drive in Centreville, Virginia, 20121. Once you enter Bull Run Regional Park, the Atlantis Waterpark is about an 8-minute drive down the main road. We will begin promptly at 1:00 pm at the Atlantis Waterpark. You should plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before the tour starts. Please allow at least 90 minutes for the experience.
The Bull Run Church and Harris Cemetery is a 10-minute walk on a dirt trail, which will probably be slightly muddy. Remember to bring a water bottle.
Prior to coming, if you have not seen the film Unmarked by Chris Haley, we recommend watching the 20-minute segment which aired recently on PBS: https://www.pbs.org/video/unmarked-99cmss/
There will be a discussion immediately following the tour.
Parts of the tour are intended to be somber and reflective. Dogs may be distracting to others, and have the potential of damaging these sacred and fragile grounds. We kindly ask that you refrain from bringing dogs. Thank you for understanding.
