DNR: State Parks to Honor National “Every Kid in a Park” Passes

Every fourth-grader in Indiana can visit both a National Park and an Indiana State Park for free this year. Current fourth-graders can download and use their fourth-grade passes through Aug. 31, 2016, and current third-graders can get their fourth-grade passes starting Sept. 1, 2016. Indiana State Parks will honor these fourth-grade passes in 2016 as a way to celebrate their centennial this year, which coincides with the National Park Service Centennial. Most Indiana State Parks charge admission per vehicle, meaning an Every Kid in a Park pass will admit everyone who is in the same vehicle as the fourth-grader. The fourth-grader must be in the vehicle for free admission to apply. For those who enter on bicycle, the pass admits all children in the group age 15 and younger, and up to three visitors age 16 or older. More information is at everykidinapark.gov.
