Saguaro National Park has free admission over Veteran’s Day weekend | Events
Enjoy a weekend of fall fun in your backyard national park, with free admission to Saguaro National Park this holiday weekend. The National Park Service is recognizing those who have served in our nation’s military by waiving entrance fees in all 398 national parks, including Saguaro National Park, from November 10 through November 12.
“National parks preserve places that commemorate our country’s collective heritage – our ideals, our majestic lands, our sacred sites, our patriotic icons – which our military has defended through the years,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “We are grateful for the service and sacrifice of military members, past and present, and honored to tell their story at many of our national parks.”
In addition to free entrance into the park, Western National Parks Association (WNPA) will offer a 15% discount on all book and gift sales, to all visitors, in both of Saguaro National Park’s visitor centers.
Active duty members of the U.S. Military and their dependents are reminded that they may be issued a free America the Beautiful pass any day between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. at either visitor center. This pass will permit the pass owner, and up to three other adults traveling with them, entrance into all National Parks for 12 months. They must show a current, valid military identification card to qualify for the pass. Additional passes are available to anyone for purchase. Inquire inside either visitor center for additional information.
Please remember that the fee free weekend waives entrance fees only. Additional user fees, such as back-country camping permit fees, still apply.
