With many Americans facing tough economic times right now, this is a way that the National Park Service can help out by making it easier to visit a National Park, to bring your family for a day or weekend of fun. We are inviting you to come by for a visit, to relax, to learn about this great nation…and to just have some fun.
According to Fort Frederica Superintendent Mary Beth Wester, "We are thrilled to offer a special weekend as a perfect time to come and experience the incredibly vibrant history of Fort Frederica and its role in our national history."
The park will be open from 9 am until 5 pm.
