National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy.
It is also a day to discover Greenbelt Park and its amenities.

Health, Family, Fun, Stewardship.

These are the four key values guiding the Let's Move Outside initiative, and what National Public Lands Day is all about. It is only natural that our two efforts are both working to encourage more American families to get active outside and on public lands.

Volunteerism is only one component of National Public Lands Day.
Come discover Greenbelt Park through the nine miles of trails, exercise fitness trail, picnic areas with playground equipment and the 174 site campground of Greenbelt Park. (Note there is a $16 fee to use the campground)

Greenbelt Park is a unit of the National Park Service. Unlike many National Parks, Greenbelt Park does not charge an entrance fee.
