America’s National Park Service is turning 99 years old on August 25, 2015, and everyone is getting a present—free admission!
(Fun Fact: On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation to create the National Park Service, which today preserves and protects 408 sites throughout the country.)
Visit a park in your neighborhood or plan a trip to one of the 408 National Park Service sites across the country to join the party. To inspire visitors, the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, have created a birthday list of 99 Ways to Find Your Park. The fun list includes a wide range of activities that your family can do in urban parks, nature parks, historic parks, and everything in between.
Visit FindYourPark.com to find a park near you and then take the family to discover and enjoy America’s most treasured places and history for free.
