The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission remind visitors that this Saturday, September 28, is a State Parks free day in recognition of National Public Lands Day. The Discover Pass is not required of visitors exploring their state parks on “free days.”
To help celebrate, State Parks has partnered with SUBWAY® restaurants to launch No Family Left Inside. On Saturday, $5,000 in SUBWAY® gift cards will be given away to the first 100 people who visit select state parks. Locally, the gift cards will be available at Twin Harbors State Park starting at 9:30 am in the park office.
Running through the end of September, No Family Left Inside rewards park visitors by honoring their Discover Pass in all 406 SUBWAY® restaurants throughout Western Washington. Anyone who visits a participating SUBWAY and shows their Discover Pass will receive a free six-inch sandwich with the purchase of a sandwich and a drink.
The Discover Pass legislation provides State Parks with the ability to designate up to 12 “free days” when the pass would not be required to visit state parks. The free days apply only at state parks. A Discover Pass is required to access DFW and DNR lands.
The final 2013 state parks free days are scheduled for November 9 through 11 during the Veteran’s Day holiday weekend. For more information about state parks free days, visit www.discoverpass.wa.gov/faq/#freedays.
