TODAY IN SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK: Each year Shenandoah National Park staff invite community neighbors to enjoy a fee-free day in the park in celebration of Shenandoah Neighbors’ Day.
On Saturday, June 21, the park is waiving entrance fees for those residents living in counties bordering the park including: Albemarle, Augusta, Greene, Madison, Nelson, Page, Rappahannock, Rockingham, and Warren.
Visitors wishing to take advantage of this, along with the discounts that will be offered at the retail stores and restaurants, will be required to provide proof of residency by showing their Virginia driver’s license. This year the celebration will include a “Community Connections Tent” at Byrd Visitor Center to showcase the rich heritage and activities park neighbors and visitors will find in our surrounding communities.
The weather is beautiful to spend the day in the park….
