Gov. Malloy Announces 'Free State Parks Weekend' This Saturday and Sunday At All Connecticut State Parks
All Parking and Museum Fees Waived This Weekend as Part of Celebration of State Parks Centennial
Governor Dannel P. Malloy and Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) Commissioner Robert Klee today announced that as part of the ongoing celebration of the state parks centennial, this upcoming Saturday and Sunday -- July 26 and 27 -- will be "Free State Parks Weekend" in Connecticut. For the weekend, all parking and museum fees will be waived throughout Connecticut's state park system.
"To encourage everyone to visit a state park in this Centennial year, we are waiving fees at our parks this Saturday and Sunday," said Governor Malloy, who made the announcement during an event at Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden -- one of Connecticut's 107 state parks. "This means we will not charge the usual parking fees and we will not collect admission fees at state park museums. With this added incentive, we expect many new patrons to visit a park and experience first-hand the beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities they offer so close to home."
