About the Toolkit
We need your help spreading the word about the Park it Forward parking tag program—and we've made it easy! See the drop-downs below for ready-to-use content to share with your organizations, employees, and individuals in your community. We invite you to join us in this historic initiative!
Valid parking tags are required on any vehicles parking for longer than 15 minutes. Approved parking rates are $5 for a daily parking tag, $15 for a weekly parking tag, and $40 for an annual parking tag. All revenue stays in the park to provide sustainable, year-round support focusing on improving the visitor experience, protecting resources, and maintaining trails, roads, historic structures, and facilities. Visitors who simply drive through the park will not need a parking tag.
