The first National Park Week was designated in 1991 by George H.W. Bush in honor of the National Park Service’s 75th anniversary.

Each April the National Park Service partners with the National Park Foundation. Special events are held across the country, and on weekends the parks offer free entrance.

The annual celebration helps foster connections, exploring amazing places on the ground and online. It’s a display of affordable vacations and trips that nourish the soul. The national parks are called America’s best idea and this week is the deep dive into the history, present and future of these remarkable places.
