The annual National Park Week - a collaboration with the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation - will run April 21-19, inviting people around the nation to enjoy, explore, learn, share, and give back to America’s nearly 400 national parks.

The theme of this year's park week is “Picture Yourself in a National Park." Throughout the country, national parks will give visitors free admission to parks during the week so they can enjoy the scenery and snap photos of their adventures in the parks.
