The five Western Pennsylvania National Park Service sites: Flight 93 National Memorial, Fort Necessity National Battlefield, Friendship Hill NHS, Johnstown Flood National Memorial and Allegheny Portage Railroad NHS invite local residents and visitors to the area to take advantage of this special opportunity while entrance fees are waived to visit the five Park sites and enjoy Spring in Western PA.

During this fee free week, visitors will be able to take a hike on 31 miles of trails and view hundreds of artifacts that document the history of our nation on display in the five Visitor Centers. Children will enjoy completing the free National Park Service Centennial Junior Ranger booklet and receiving a Centennial Junior Ranger Badge. Also New this year Eastern National has developed a Centennial Stamp for each Park Service site, so visitors will want to have their passport book stamped when touring the park Visitor Centers.

During National Park Week entrance fees will be waived at Fort Necessity National Battlefield, Johnstown Flood National Memorial and Allegheny Portage Railroad National Historic Site. Friendship Hill NHS and Flight 93 National Memorial have no entrance fee. Park visitors are encouraged to help spread the word by sharing your National Park Week experiences through social media by using hashtags #findyourpark and #nationalparks.
