Saturday is Washington Park Free Day

March 29, 2013

Washington State Parks announced Saturday is a “free day” when visitors are not required to display the Discover Pass to visit a state park.

The March 30 free day commemorates State Parks’ 100th birthday month. The state park system was established March 19, 1913, when the Washington State Legislature established the State Board of Park Commissioners. Washington State Parks invites the public to celebrate the Centennial of the state park system all year, with events and activities in parks all over the state.

Visit www.parks.wa.gov/events/ for details.

The State Parks and Recreation Commission selected most of its 2013 “free days” in conjunction with the National Park Service’s free days.

The next “free day” is scheduled for April 27 and 28.

• June 1 – National Trails Day
• June 8 and 9 – National Get Outdoors Day
• August 4 – Peak season free day
