State Parks announces 'free day' for Sept. 26

 


In recognition of National Public Lands Day the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission wants the public to know that Saturday, Sept. 26, is a state parks “free day.” Day-use visitors will not need a Discover Pass to visit state parks.

The free day is in recognition of the 22nd anniversary of National Public Lands Day—the nation’s largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands.

The Discover Pass legislation provided that State Parks could designate up to 12 free days each year when the pass would not be required to visit state parks. The Discover Pass is still required to access lands managed by WDFW and DNR on these days.

Free days apply only to day-use access by vehicle, not overnight stays or rented facilities.

Washington State Parks will have one more free day in 2015: Wednesday, Nov. 11, in honor of Veterans Day.
