So What Is National Park Week?
Each spring, the National Park Service invites everyone to join in on America's largest celebration of national heritage and celebrate all that America’s more than 400 national parks have to offer during National Park Week, April 16 – 24. In honor of the National Park Service Centennial this year, all parks are offering free admission the entire week. It's about making great connections, exploring amazing places, discovering open spaces, enjoying affordable vacations, and enhancing America’s best idea -- the national parks! From diverse wildlife and iconic landscapes, to vibrant culture and rich history, our National Park System has something for everyone. And, it's all free in your national parks this coming week.
