State park pass fees will make a jump

By Len Kiese - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It'll soon cost you more to enjoy some of the state's natural resources.

Beginning Wednesday, annual passes at Georgia's state parks will jump to $50 bucks, an increase of $20.

State leaders say the additional money will help pay for maintenance and repair projects at the state's 63 parks. This is the second ParkPass increase since the program began in 1992.

Daily parking fees will also increase from $3 to $5.
