You can go to a state park for free this weekend. Washington State Parks has announced that this Sunday and Monday are the first of 12 “free days” in 2014 when visitors are not required to display the Discover Pass to visit a state park.
The Discover Pass, a $30 annual or $10 one-day permit is normally required on state-managed recreation lands managed by Washington State Parks, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Department of Natural Resources. The Discover Pass legislation allows State Parks to designate up to 12 “free days” when you can go pass-free. This weekend’s dates are in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
