A free admission day at state parks

4:23 pm March 28th, 2013

Admission to all of Washington’s state parks will be free March 30 in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the state parks system.
The freebie is in keeping with state legislation that created the Discover Pass, a $30 annual or $10 one-day permit required on recreation land managed by Washington State Parks, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the state Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The legislation provided that parks could designate as many as 12 days when the pass wouldn’t be required.
Free days apply only at state parks. The Discover Pass is still required for access to WDFW and DNR-managed areas.

    With all the properthy taxes we pay as well as sales tax, tabs, and other pay for things…you otta think we should be able to visit the parks (WE PAY FOR WITH OUR TAX money) anytime we want. Where is it in the laws does it say the Government owns the land in which we walk upon? Please someone tell me cos I think our government is really over stepping its boundries to create more monetary income for their happy spending.
