For Folk Festival weekend (July 29 & 30), Senior Passes will be available ONLY at the Boott Cotton Mills Museum (110 John Street- a 10-minute walk from the Visitor Center).
The Senior Pass is available at the Visitor Center for the park at 246 Market Street. Free parking is available for the visitor center at 304 Dutton Street (just take a ticket and we'll validate it inside). The visitor center is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The Senior pass is $10 and is good for a lifetime. It will allow the passholder, and up to 3 additional guests, free entry into any park that charges an entrance fee. Be sure to bring a state-issued License or ID that shows you are eligible for the pass (age 62+). With some recent legislation, the price will be going up to $80 in the near future (probably a few months from now), so I would recommend getting the pass as soon as you can.
