National Park Service Centennial

Last week was National Park Week.  Did you #FindYourPark?  If so, which one?  Also, it is the National Park Service (NPS) 100th Anniversary this year.  Check out https://www.nps.gov/subjects/centennial/index.htm for a variety of centennial activities in your area.

http://findyourpark.com/ is not the most user-friendly site but a decent list of parks can be found at the nps.gov site.  Bam!  For WA, the list is located at https://www.nps.gov/state/wa/index.htm ~ so which one will you choose for Spring 2016?

There is a variety of parks and forest within each state…here are some examples for Washington State:

  • City Park – Bellevue Downtown Park
  • County Park  – Ravensdale Park
  • State Park – Deception Pass State Park
  • National Forest – Mt.Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest
  • National Park – Olympic National Park
  • and recreation areas, lakes, trials, open spaces, and more…
