Being able to explore nature and spend time with your family’s an important part of life. Visiting any of the Massachusetts State Parks allows you to have fun and create lasting memories with the people you love.
Unfortunately, visiting Massachusetts State Parks is rather expensive when you have a limited income and cannot afford to pay for the parking and entrance fees during your visit. Here you will find some of the ways you can save money during your visit, making it affordable for you and your family.
Get a Parks Pass to Massachusetts State Parks!
Most Massachusetts State Parks charge every patron for parking while they visit any of the parks. Depending on the park and the scenery around the area you choose to park in, you’ll pay anywhere from $2.00 to $13.00. However, you can avoid these expensive fees by borrowing a Parks Pass from a participating library in your area. You can borrow a pass at no cost and park at any state park for free.

Seniors can get a discounted Parks Pass!
If you’re 62 years of age or older, you qualify for a discount Parkspass. A senior Parkspass allows free parking at any of the Massachusetts State Parks for the lifetime of the pass holder. A senior ParksPass will cost $10.00, which saves park visitors $50 off the original ParksPass cost. For more information or to apply for a senior ParksPass, click here.
