As part of an effort to bring summer back to Louisiana and encourage people to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated against COVID-19, free admission to Louisiana State Parks is now offered to anyone vaccinated, Governor John Bel Edwards and Lieutenant. Governor Billy Nungesser announced today. Those vaccinated can access all 21 Louisiana state parks for free until July 31. This offer is available to all visitors to Louisiana and elsewhere who have been vaccinated, regardless of when they were vaccinated. This offer does not extend to tourist groups.
With new and improved facilities, there has never been a better time to enjoy Louisiana’s beautiful state parks. Many sites also offer paddling pools for children. Visit LAStateParks.Com for a full list of sites. These perks are part of the Louisiana Summer Bring Back initiative, which will announce more fun rewards in the near future.
“Louisiana State Parks are beautiful, educational, and now free for those who are vaccinated against COVID-19, which is a great way to help bring Louisiana back and celebrate our state this summer,” said said Governor Edwards. “I appreciate Lt. Gov. Nungesser’s support for the Bring Back Louisiana campaign and for making admission free for those vaccinated,” Gov. Edwards said. In addition to offering free entry to Louisiana state parks, a number of national companies are offering incentives to their customers and employees who take the COVID-19 vaccine. Today we announced new benefits for people who have been vaccinated, but we have more announcements planned for the coming weeks, so people should go for the vaccines now so they don’t miss a thing. Currently, nearly 32% of our population is fully immunized, and that number is expected to continue to increase. “
“As we open our doors to tourists from all over Louisiana and the world, we are pleased to participate and offer this incentive, which will bring visitors to our beautiful state parks,” said Lt. Gov. Nungesser.
