State Parks to Honor Veterans by Offering Free Admission

November 01, 2010

Montgomery, Ala. - On Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11, 2010, Alabama State Parks will waive park entrance fees for veterans as a way of honoring all living Americans who have served their country in a branch of the U.S. Military. Anyone who indicates they are a veteran will be admitted into the park day use areas without charge on Thursday only. No identification will be required.

“This is just a small tribute to those who have helped give us the freedom to enjoy our way of life,” Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Commissioner Barnett Lawley said. “We are deeply grateful for their service to our country.”
 
The 22 Alabama State Parks are located across Alabama; from the mountain ranges of the north to the beaches of Gulf State Park, recreational options abound including comfortable accommodations, camping, golfing, fishing, boating, hiking, biking, swimming, and much more. For more information about Alabama State Parks visit www.alapark.com.
 
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
