Virginia State Park parking fees waived for Veteran’s Day
RICHMOND –Virginia State Parks will waive parking fees for everyone on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11. These fees will be waived at all 35 state parks managed by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.
Last year Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell first announced the Veteran’s Day fee waiver to honor the members and families of America’s armed services, both current and past,
In addition to the parking fee waivers for everyone on Veteran’s Day, parking fees are waived every day for Armed Forces Veterans and for active military personnel and their families living in Virginia. These waivers remain in place through the end of 2011 as part of Virginia’s celebration of the state parks’ 75th anniversary.
Virginia State Parks with their blend of outdoor offerings such as hiking, camping and picnicking and their many natural and cultural programs have long been family-oriented. Virginia State Parks remain open year-round, with the fall being an increasingly popular time of year to visit.
