Free admission to state parks on Black Friday

STATEWIDE – The Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation is waiving daily entrance fees at all state parks tomorrow, Friday, Nov. 27.

Those wishing to forego the traditional “Black Friday” shopping madness and opt instead for a day of hiking, biking, and enjoying nature will find more than 100 miles of trails to explore in Delaware’s 16 state parks.

All Delaware State Parks’ gates will open at 8 a.m. on Friday, although park offices will be closed.

At Lums Pond State Park, the popular “Go Ape Treetop Adventure” is also offering free admission to zipline courses for kids less than 16 years of age (when accompanied by an adult).

Use the hashtag “#OptOutside” on Twitter and Facebook to see who else is sharing the day in Delaware’s parkland.
