Visit a state park for free for Veterans Day
Thursday, November 4, 2021 by Tai Moses
In honor of military service members, entrance fees at Texas State Parks will be waived for day-use visitors on Sunday, Nov. 14, the Sunday after Veterans Day, which is Thursday, Nov. 11. Rodney Franklin, state parks director, explained in an announcement, “The dedication, sacrifice and service displayed by the women and men that serve in our country’s military is unparalleled and is a source of pride throughout the country. … To celebrate their service, Texas State Parks would like to once again invite everyone to spend the day at any one of our beautiful state parks for free.” Some state parks are expected to reach their capacity limit, so visitors are encouraged to reserve day passes online in advance.
