What's better than spending a nice, spring day wandering one of Minnesota's many state parks and recreation areas?
Doing it for free, of course.
On Wednesday, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources posted a reminder about the second free park day of 2022, which will take place Saturday, April 23.
On each of the year's designated Free Park Days, visitors are welcome to explore all of Minnesota's 75 state parks and recreation areas sans admission.
The DNR says the idea is to "encourage families to spend time together with a walk outdoors."
You also won't want to miss the final two Free Park Days of the year: Saturday, June 11 and Friday, Nov. 25.
