Parking fees at Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) properties will be waived for all visitors on Veterans Day this Sat., 11/11. Additionally, during the upcoming holiday, visitors are encouraged to participate in self-guided hikes at state parks, where there are many veterans memorials, military forts, and other notable sites located throughout the Commonwealth. The fee waiver directly corresponds with a National Park Service initiative that also provides free admission at federal parks nationwide on Veterans Day.
Additionally, on Saturday, November 11, 2017, Quabbin Reservoir staff will hold programming at 2:00PM in the Visitor Center to share stories of the Massachusetts men and women who were enlisted from 1776 through the Korean War.
DCR also offers free parking at its facilities year round to cars with Disabled Veterans license plates from all states. To find a full list of all DCR managed state parks, please visit the agency’s website.
