Maine State Parks free to state residents for Father's Day
Jun. 18, 2017
FREEPORT, Maine (AP) — It's Father's Day and dads love free stuff, so the state of Maine's decision to open its state parks for free might be especially well timed.
Maine State Parks and Historic Sites are free all day on Sunday for state residents. Gov. Paul LePage, a dad himself, says Maine State Parks attracted a record of 2.87 million visitors last year and the state hopes to bring in even more this year.
The free day does not apply to a handful of sites, including Scarborough Beach State Park and Baxter State Park. Park-goers are encouraged to check with Maine State Parks beforehand.
