Georgia State Park Passes Now Available for Checkout!

by Nolan R

Logo_go The new theme for Georgia State Parks is Get Out, Get Dirty, Get Fit, For FREE!  To help residents do just that, a new program allows library patrons to check out park passes.

A joint initiative of Georgia Public Library Service and the Parks, Recreation and Historic Sites Division (PRHSD) of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the public library ParkPass Program began June 2.

Folders include an annual ParkPass that exempts visitors from paying the daily parking fee at state parks, an annual Historic Site pass good for free admission for one visitor to any of Georgia’s 18 state historic sites and a copy of the Guide to Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites featuring descriptions, photos, directions and a map of all locations.

The folders can be located in the DCPL Catalog by a keyword search for the words “Georgia State Parks.”  They can be checked out for one week, and can be renewed twice if there are no holds waiting.  The overdue fine will be $0.50 per folder per day.  Most branches have at least two folders available for checkout; please check with your local branch for more information.  Be sure to keep up with the whole kit, though–a lost piece of the folder will result in a $30 replacement charge!

Among the park system’s most popular attractions are Amicalola Falls State Park in Dawsonville, the Dahlonega Gold Museum Historic Site, Etowah Indian Mounds Historic Site in Cartersville, the Jefferson Davis Memorial Historic Site in Fitzgerald, Roosevelt’s Little White House Historic Site in Warm Springs, Tallulah Gorge State Park in Tallulah Falls and Unicoi State Park in Helen.  Visit the Georgia State Parks website for more information.  For more information on the GO Georgia Campaign, including tips and events, check the Get Outdoors Georgia website.
