New State Park Pass for Utah's Veterans with Disabilities
Salt Lake City – The Board of Utah State Parks and Recreation approved a new discounted pass for Utah veterans with disabilities effective February 1, 2011. Veterans with a service-connected disability of 50% or greater may purchase the Annual Pass for $35, which is more than 50% off the regular price. Qualified veterans are asked to complete an affidavit and attach appropriate documentation.
“We’re pleased to offer this opportunity to those who have given so much to our state and country,” said Utah State Parks Director Mary Tullius.
The Annual Pass provides day-use access to most of Utah’s 43 state parks for the pass holder and up to seven guests in the same private vehicle. Annual passes do not cover the Davis County Causeway Fee at Antelope Island, entrance fees at This Is The Place Heritage Park, and are good for one machine/rider at Jordan River Off-Highway Vehicle State Recreation Area.
As part of another Utah State Parks program, the agency places free Annual Passes in 84 libraries statewide. Any library patron may check out a pass with their library card and visit the parks of their choice through the Check It Out Program.
