National Park Week
Celebrate National Park Week
Each spring, the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation invite everyone to celebrate National Park Week. From April 16 – 24, you are invited to celebrate all that America’s more than 400 national parks have to offer. And in honor of the National Park Service Centennial this year, all parks are offering free admission the entire week. From diverse wildlife and iconic landscapes, to vibrant culture and rich history, our National Park System has something for everyone.
Join us for National Park Week in-person at special events and online, and be sure to share your memories with us using #FindYourPark and #EncuentraTuParque!
The National Park Service turns 100 on August 25, 2016! Please join our Centennial celebration.
A park can be different things to different people. Find yours. It might be closer than you think.
