Celebrate Statehood with Colorado Parks and Wildlife

Colorado Parks Wildlife Logo - smColorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) joins the celebration of Colorado’s acceptance into statehood with free access to all Colorado State Parks, Aug. 4.

Colorado was first recognized as a state Aug. 1, 1876. The first Colorado State Park emerged some eighty short years later.

“The preservation of beautiful places for everyone to enjoy is a uniquely American concept,” said CPW Parks and Outdoor Recreation Assistant Director Ken Brink. “The outdoors is the fabric of who we are in Colorado.”

Most Coloradans live less than 30 minutes from a state park. Go to http://cpw.state.co.us/placestogo/parks/Pages/parkMap.aspx to locate a state park near you where you can enjoy the outdoors by biking a trail or hiking with the kids. No matter what you choose, Brink is confident once you visit a State Park you will want to go back again.

Park entrance fees are waived, but activities like fishing and camping will still require a valid license and permit. Celebrate the statehood of Colorado with CPW’s natural resources at one of 42 quality state parks or 300 state wildlife areas.
