Entry fees waived at all Del. State Parks, Zoo on Black Friday

DELAWARE – The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control has waived state park and zoo fees annually on Black Friday since 2015, and this year will be no different.

This free entry day is part of the #OptOutside movement. More than 7,000 organizations and 7 million people nationwide participate in the campaign each year. Visitors to Delaware State Parks can support and promote the movement on social media with the #OptOutside hashtag.

Face coverings are required for all individuals, regardless of vaccine status, in all indoor state facilities, including park offices, restrooms, nature centers, interpretive sites, and museums. Children younger than age 2 should not wear masks due to the risk of suffocation.

All Delaware State Parks will open at 8 a.m. Friday, with the exception of Fort Delaware State Park, which is closed for the season. Park offices will be closed. The Brandywine Zoo will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Delaware State Parks fee season will end on Tuesday, November 30th. Entry to all parks and the zoo will be free from Wednesday, December 1, through Monday, February 28, 2022.
