national park weekThe National Park Foundation created the graphic at right to promote National Park Week, which runs April 15 to 23, 2017.

National Parks, National Monuments, National Recreation Areas and other properties manged by the Park Service will offer special programs and activities during the week. These properties will waive entrance fees April 15–16 and 22–23. (Fees will still be required for camping and some other activities.)

The Park Service has set up this web page to help people find out about activities and events they may find interesting.

We encourage you to visit parks, during this special week or whenever a trip fits into your schedule. Better yet, take others with you. Especially kids!
