National parks waive entrance fees

As part of the 18th annual celebration, the National Park Service will waive all entrance fees and host special events for visitors and volunteers at national parks around the country.

“Ranging from the community playground to the world’s first national park, about one third of our country’s land is public space – set aside for all of us to enjoy,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “Whether you prefer to lend a hand on a volunteer project or just take it easy, Let’s Move Outside on National Public Lands Day and experience these wonderful places.”

Worldwide Day of Play

As part of the National Public Lands Day events, the National Park Service and National Park Foundation have also partnered with Nickelodeon to host the 8th annual Worldwide Day of Play. If you can, head to the Ellipse in President’s Park, next to the White House, in Washington, DC, where the flagship Worldwide Day of Play event will be held. There will be an entire day of physical activities and games for kids and their families to encourage active and healthy lifestyles.

Also on September 24, Nickelodeon’s networks and website will go dark from 12 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (ET/PT) in an effort to inspire kids and families to get up and get active. Visit WorldwideDayofPlay.com for more information.
