Washington State Parks to offer two free days in April

 

Looking to go explore some Washington State Parks, but don't yet have a Discover Pass? Well, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission will offer two free days in April.

 

Visitors will not need to display a Discover Pass for day-use visits to any of Washington's State Parks on April 4th, a springtime free Saturday, and Earth Day on Wednesday, April 22nd.

 

Free days are in keeping with legislation that created the Discover Pass, a $30 annual or $10 one-day permit required on recreation lands managed by Washington State Parks, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). This legislation provided that State Parks could designate up to 12 free days each year when the pass would not be required to visit state parks. 

 

A Discover Pass is still needed to access WDFW and DNR lands on State Park free days.
