National Park Service Celebrates 100 Years

National Park Service 100 Years

On Aug. 25, the National Parks Service celebrates 100 years of service! In Oklahoma and throughout the nation, our national parks provide a habitat for wildlife, including birds, insects and hundreds of mammals, like bison, deer and rabbits.

This week from Aug. 25-28, all national parks are free to visit, so take time out this weekend to visit Oklahoma’s national parks: Chickasaw National Recreation Area, Oklahoma City National Memorial and the Fort Smith National Historic Site.
