Family Fun at Gateway!

Gateway National Recreation Area is a great place for the whole family all year long. The National Park Service offers many programs throughout the year for kids to learn about the nature and history that's right here in their own backyard, or to bring out their creativity. They can even earn Junior Ranger badges. Get the whole family together, and visit the Gateway site nearest you, or make a day trip to visit the other sites. Whatever you do, kids of all ages will enjoy discovering the treasures found in our local national park!
