Free Admission to National Parks

Make an executive decision to visit a national park this Presidents Day weekend. All 405 national parks will offer free admission from February 14 through 16.

Every president has strong associations with national parks. In fact, the White House – the home and office of each present since John Adams – is a national park. Although he never lived in the White House, President George Washington’s ties to national parks include Independence Hall (Pa.), Federal Hall (N.Y.), Great Falls Park (Va.), Fort Necessity (Pa.), George Washington Birthplace (Va.), and the Washington Monument (D.C.). President Barack Obama has visited Grand Canyon (Ariz.) and Yellowstone (Wyo.) national parks with his family. He has also created five new national parks via presidential proclamation, including Cesar E. Chavez National Monument (Calif.) and Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument (Md.).

In addition to providing free entrance, many parks will host special events to celebrate the holiday. A complete calendar of events, and presidential travel itineraries and lesson plans, are available on the Presidents Day page of events.
