Free state park day encourages healthy outdoor recreation

TOPEKA – Who knew that engaging in outdoor activity at a Kansas State Park could be beneficial to your health and well being? In fact, taking part in outdoor recreation in Kansas can make you happier, build great family memories, promote a healthy body and even live longer. The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism is hosting Healthy Fun at the Parks Day on Saturday, Sept. 26, a day when admission to all Kansas State Parks will be free.

Kansas state parks include 32,200 acres of land, more than 500 miles of trails, more than 280 miles of roads, 10,000 campsites, many with utility hookups, more than 120 cabins, and access to more than 130,000 surface-acres of water.

“So many Kansans are unaware of the unique terrain and beautiful landscapes that can be found at Kansas state parks and the fun and healthy outdoor activities that can be enjoyed at each of the parks,” said Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Secretary Robin Jennison.
