FREE admission by National Parks System and Washington State Parks in Washington State [#NationalParksSystem #WashingtonStateParks #AllThingsFREE]
To honor the 103rd birthday of the National Parks System, both the National Parks System and the Washington State Parks system are giving a gift: FREE admission.
Single-day visitors to any state park on Sunday, Aug. 25, 2019 will not need a Discover Pass to park. The pass costs $30 a year or $10 for one day. The 2011 law that created the Discover Pass system also directed the state parks system to offer as many as 12 FREE days per year.
After this Sunday, 2 FREE state-parks days remain in 2019: Saturday, Sept. 28 (National Public Lands Day) and Monday, Nov. 11 (Veterans Day).
Washington’s state and national parks are FREE this Sunday. Here are some favorites to check out:
