AUGUSTA — All Maine State Parks and historic sites will offer free admission to Maine residents from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, June 15.

All vehicles bearing Maine license plates will be given free admission at all 48 state-owned and operated locales, according to the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands.

“I encourage Maine families to visit and explore our state parks and historic sites on Father’s Day and throughout the season,” Gov. Paul LePage said. “This free-admission day, coinciding with Father’s Day, is a way of thanking Maine residents and showing appreciation for their support of Maine parks and lands throughout the year.”

The open admission does not apply to Baxter State Park, Scarborough Beach State Park or the Penobscot Narrows Observatory in Prospect.
