Delaware State Parks offers new Annual Pass
 for members of the military

DOVER (Dec. 7, 2012) – Following the passage of House Bill 235, DNREC’s Division of Parks and Recreation has introduced a new annual pass for members of the military. The new military pass is available to Delaware residents who are active duty military or veterans, and have proper documentation of service.  The pass costs $13.50 annually and is on sale now.

The new pass will grant members of the military admission to Delaware State Parks that charge an admission fee without having to pay each time they visit. The pass may be purchased at any state park office or from the central office in Dover at 89 Kings Highway or at the Outdoor Recreation Center, building 275 at the Dover Air Force Base.

The Annual Pass program allows pass holders unlimited access to specific parks throughout the fee season, which runs from March 1 through Nov. 30 each year. Every year, a new shape and photo are chosen for the pass design. Different passes have different color borders to identify them. The new Military Pass has a camouflage border to distinguish it from other passes. 

In June of this year, the General Assembly passed HB 235 to recognize those who have honorably served or are currently serving in the armed services of the United States including service as a member of the Delaware National Guard. 

“We deeply appreciate the sacrifice of these men and women on behalf of our state and our country and offer this pass as a small sign of our gratitude,” said Representative William J. Carson, sponsor of the bill.

More information about the Military and other Annual Passes is available at or at park offices throughout the state.
