Greenbelt Park Welcomes 4th Grade Students Through Every Kid In a Park Initiative.
New National Program Encourages Families and Classes to Visit National Parks.

Greenbelt Park invites all 4th grade students to visit the park as part of the White House’s new Every Kid in a Park program. Starting today, 4th grade students can now go to www.everykidinapark.gov to complete an activity and obtain a free annual entry pass to more than 2,000 federal recreation areas, including national parks.

“During the National Park Service’s centennial celebration, we want everyone to get to know their national parks, and we’re offering a special invitation to fourth graders and their families to discover everything that national parks offer,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “We hope these free passes for fourth graders will introduce 4th graders, their classes, and families to our national treasures, places where they can run and play, explore and learn.”

Greenbelt Park offers a variety of activities that fourth graders and their family can enjoy, including a guided nature hikes, junior ranger talks, educational programs in the classroom, family and scout camping opportunities, and picnic areas. Greenbelt Park is known as an “urban oasis” for its preservation of 1,100 natural acres within the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. This green oasis of woods and fields offers a tranquil atmosphere surrounded by the Maryland suburbs, just 12 miles north of downtown Washington, D.C., and 27 miles south of Baltimore.
To receive their free pass for national parks, fourth graders can visit the Every Kid in a Park website and play a game to access their special Every Kid in a Park pass. Fourth graders and their families can then use this pass for free entry national parks and other federal public lands and waters across the country from September 1st, 2015 through August 31, 2016. The website also includes fun and engaging learning activities aligned to educational standards, trip planning tools, safety and packing tips and other important and helpful information for educators and parents.
