Oregon State Parks invites the public to play for free on Friday, Nov. 24, in celebration of “Green Friday,” the day after Thanksgiving. The agency will waive day-use parking fees in 26 Oregon State Parks that day, according to the Siuslaw News.
“We started this tradition three years ago to encourage people to opt outside,” said OPRD director Lisa Sumption. “Why not get some fresh air with your family and create a new holiday tradition?”
To help celebrate, the nonprofit Oregon State Parks Foundation is offering free hot drinks and snacks at Tryon Creek State Natural Area, Fort Stevens State Park, Rooster Rock State Park, Silver Falls State Park and Cape Blanco State Park.
In addition, refreshments — donated by Starbucks Coffee, Nossa Familia Coffee, Smith Tea, Stevens Cocoa and KIND Bars — will be served by volunteers from the local Friends Groups.
