The Alabama State Parks Division is celebrating 200 years of Alabama statehood on the 200th day of 2019 – Friday, July 19 – by declaring it Bicentennial Day at Alabama State Parks!! On that day, Alabama’s state parks will offer free admission, free parking, and a 20 percent discount on overnight accommodations (some exceptions apply).
In addition to Alabama’s bicentennial, the state parks system is celebrating its 80th anniversary!
“From providing work for veterans in the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) in the early 1900s to providing access to outdoor recreation for all who visit, Alabama’s state parks have been an important part of the state’s history for 80 years now,” said Greg Lein, State Parks Director. “We invite everyone to take advantage of Bicentennial Day and visit their favorite state park or explore one they’ve not yet experienced.”
