State parks offer free admission March 18-19

TACOMA — Washington state parks are offering free admission four times this year. The first set of free days will be March 18-19 in honor of the park system’s 99th birthday on March 19.

The News Tribune reported the other days are June 9, Sept. 29 and Nov. 10-12.

On these days, the Discover Pass will not be required to visit a state park. But the Discover Pass still will be required to access lands managed by the state departments of Natural Resources and Fish and Wildlife on the free park days.

The cost for the Discover Pass is $10 a day or $30 a year (some transaction fees might be charged). You can learn more about the pass at discoverpass.wa.gov.
