Parks fees waived for a day

Alaska State parks director James King announces that day-use parking fees will be suspended for the day in all Alaska State Parks on May 11.

"So, please plan to visit our state parks to enjoy a hike, bike ride, picnic or other activity," King said.

Not all of the parks may be open yet, so interested park visitors should check to determine the status of park opening at www.alaskastateparks.org. Also, all fees other than day use parking fees will still be collected.
