JUNE 22-FREE ADMISSION TO COUNTY PARKS IN KALAMAZOO
To celebrate the beginning of summer, free admission is being offered on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at all the Kalamazoo County Parks to encourage everyone to get outside and explore nature. If you haven’t had the opportunity to explore the great parks our county has to offer, this is your chance! Goody bags will be available while supplies last and include assorted items varying by park. You can also enter for a chance to win a 2016 Annual Vehicle Entrance Pass.
The Kalamazoo County Parks offer the perfect location for outdoor recreation. Enjoy a day at one of the three swimming beaches, let your kids get wet at the splash pad, go for a hike, take your dog to the dog park, do some fishing, plan a picnic, play a round of disc golf, or even go camping for a couple nights. All these activities and more are available at the parks.
“Many people don’t realize all the opportunities for recreation at the parks right here in Kalamazoo County,” said David Rachowicz, Parks Director. “This is a great way to kick off the summer and see all that the parks have to offer.”
