We invite you to share information about a new state park pass program, the California State Park Adventure Pass, with your fourth grade students. The pass provides free entry for fourth graders and their families to 19 amazing participating state parks throughout the state.
Championed by First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom and supported by the Natural Resources Agency and California State Parks, the California State Park Adventure Pass program waives day-use entrance fees to 19 participating state parks for fourth graders and their families for a full year—including the summer.
The State of California believes in the right of all Californians to have access to recreational opportunities and enjoy the cultural, historical and natural resources found across the state. The First Partner, California Natural Resources Agency and California State Parks are prioritizing efforts to expand all Californians’ access to park, open space, nature and cultural amenities. This priority requires reshaping funding and programs to expand opportunities to enjoy these places. Doing so advances Governor Gavin Newsom’s strong personal commitment to building a “California for All.”
Getting a free California State Park Adventure Pass online is simple. All that is needed from a parent or guardian is a name, address, phone number and email address. For individuals who do not have access to a smartphone, computer or printer, or do not have an email address, they can still get a pass by visiting a State Parks Pass Sales Office; click here for a list of locations or call (800) 444-7275.
