As summer approaches, your family may want to get outdoors and visit a local state park. If you don’t already hold a ParkPass or Historic Site Pass, you can head to your local library to check both passes out, just like you would check out books.
Good for five days, the passes cover the $5 daily parking fee at all state parks and the cost of admission for up to four visitors at any historic site. Because libraries stock only a limited number of passes, you should call your local branch beforehand to reserve these.
Keep in mind that Chattahoochee River National Recreation Areas, Corps of Engineers lakes, Jekyll Island, Lake Lanier and Stone Mountain are not state parks, and so your ParkPass will not cover parking and entrance fees there.
