Each year the President proclaims a week to celebrate and recognize the country’s national parks. This is an especially good time for visitors to tour the nearly 400 National Park Service sites because parks that normally charge fees will be free all week.
You can plan your visit by what you want to do, or where you want to go ...
or you can browse our event calendar and check out the special programs
offered that week. On April 27, National Junior Ranger Day, parks will invite young visitors to "explore,
learn, protect" and be sworn in as Junior Rangers.
A bunch of our park partners and concessioners are also providing discounts to
make your visit even more enjoyable.
Also, don't forget to check out www.nationalparkweek.org. There you can
share your national park photos, videos, and tips. While you're there, learn
all about the ways you can help support your national parks all year round.
We hope you'll picture yourself in a national park during National Park Week!
