Free 2011 National Park Days Announced

No admission fees will be charged on 17 days starting with Jan. 15-17, giving most Americans a chance to visit or vacation and act on their New Year's resolutions, Interior Secretary Salazar said.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on Jan. 5 announced 17 dates this year when the National Park Service will waive admission fees.

"Many people have made resolutions to spend more quality time with loved ones and to get outdoors and unplug in 2011," he said. "There's no better place than a national park to help keep those resolutions. Parks offer superb recreational opportunities, making them perfect places to enjoy our beautiful land, history, and culture and nurture a healthy lifestyle."

He said most Americans live within a few hours of at least one of the 394 national parks throughout the country. "In these tough economic times, our fee-free days will give families many opportunities to enjoy our nation's heritage and natural beauty in meaningful and affordable ways," Salazar said.

The 2011 fee-free dates are the weekend of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (January 15-17), National Park Week (April 16-24), the first day of summer (June 21), National Public Lands Day (September 24), and the weekend of Veterans Day (November 11-13).
