Shenandoah National Park Continues Neighbor Appreciation Day
6/10/2011

Shenandoah National Park will celebrate its communities and neighbors with the continuation of Shenandoah Neighbors’ Day.  On June 18, 2011, the park will waive entrance fees for those residents living in the following counties adjoining the park: Albemarle, Augusta, Greene, Madison, Nelson, Page, Rappahannock, Rockingham and Warren.  Shenandoah Neighbors’ Day is an annual event held on the third Saturday of each June.

Superintendent Martha Bogle said, “This is a very special year for the park and our surrounding communities.  Together we are celebrating the park’s 75 th Anniversary.  We hope this fee free day will encourage our neighbors to reconnect with the park by enjoying a day with their friends and families and getting to know their park better.”

The Shenandoah National Park Association plans to welcome park neighbors by providing residents of the nine counties a 20% discount on all items in their bookstores located in the Dickey Ridge and Byrd Visitor Centers.  The Shenandoah National Park Association supports the interpretive and educational activities of Shenandoah National Park.

Visitors wishing to take advantage of this fee free day and the discounts should be prepared to provide proof of residency by showing their Virginia driver’s license.

For more information about planning a trip to Shenandoah National Park or for information about park activities go to http://www.nps.gov/shen or call the park at (540) 999-3500.
