From the Metro
The pitch is walking distance from the West Hyattsville Metro Station. Exit the metro and head towards Ager Road (this is across the parking lot and bus bays). Turn left on Ager Road. Continue for about 1/4 mile to Nicholson Street. Make a right onto Nicholson (this is on the opposite side of the road from the metro). Follow the path past the dog park about another 1/4 mile to the field. The games will be on the turf field on the far side of the parking lot.
**For accurate driving directions enter the intersection of “Nicholson Street and Ager Road, Hyattsville, MD” Internet/GPS directions to this field can be very misleading!** From Nicholson and Ager look for the dog park that is visible from the intersection. The driveway leading to parking and the field is next to the dog park off of Nicholson Street. Take this all the way to the end. The turf field has bleachers and a fenced enclosure.
Following the matches, the Furies will host a social at the Heurich Park pavilion.
