State Parks extends parks passes

Thursday, April 9, 2020 by Tai Moses

This week, Texas State Parks made the difficult decision to temporarily close all state parks, “until public health and safety conditions improve.” But there’s a silver lining: Because of the closure, parks pass holders can add two months to the life of their pass. The extension is automatically granted to anyone whose parks pass was active on April 7. It may take a few weeks before the additional time appears on online accounts. If the closures continue, the state parks department may consider adding even more time to the passes.
