It’s National Park Week! It’s no secret that America’s National Parks and outdoor spaces are worth celebrating, but you may have the question… what is National Park Week? Just another note on the calendar? It’s bit more than that.
National Park Week = Free Park Admission
In short, National Park Week is a time to go to National Parks with free admission. Many parks charge admission to cover administrative operations. The funding goes to keeping the parks as pristine as possible. But for this one week — and both weekends on either end — you can get in for free.
