All Parks will have Free Entrance on January 15

January 10, 2018 - WASHINGTON – On January 15, commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with free admission and special events at national parks.

“A national park is a meaningful place to remember and honor Dr. King, whether one participates in a day of service or visits a site with a direct connection to the man who moved hearts and minds in the struggle for civil rights and equality,” said National Park Service Deputy Director Michael T. Reynolds.

Reflect on his life and legacy at parks with personal ties to Dr. King:

Special events on January 15 include the ceremonial tapping of the Liberty Bell at Independence National Historical Park and the program “Through Our Voices: Get the Word Out!” at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park featuring poets, musicians, and a panel of African American park rangers who will share stories about the struggles for social justice.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is an official day of service in remembrance of the man whose commitment to community bridged barriers. Many parks will host service projects on this day on, not off.

All National Park Service sites will have free admission on January 15 in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It will be the first of four nationwide. Normally, 116 national parks charge admission fees which range from $3 to $30. The other 301 national parks do not have an entrance fee.
