Join Us in Celebrating the Great Sand Dunes National Park
It’s no secret that we love our local National Park, so we figured why not give it the recognition it deserves? With “National Parks Week” slated for April 17-25, we figured we’d up the ante by extending this celebration through the entire month of April. Throughout the month, visitors can attend a new roster of special events, find free swag at the Welcome Center, and access vouchers to be used throughout Alamosa. As the gateway to the Great Sand Dunes National Park, we invite you to join in on the fun by exploring and experiencing all that the park has to offer.
Discover the Park
The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve is one of Colorado’s four National Parks and is located conveniently near Alamosa in the Mystic San Luis Valley. The park contains the tallest sand dunes in North America and its vast dune field covers more than 30 sq. miles! The park is further distinguished by its unique biological diversity, as visitors can explore wetlands, forests, tundra, and more ecosystems all within a single afternoon. Learn more about the dunes and how to enjoy the park here.
Supporting Local During Your Next Adventure
During the month of April, visitors can find vouchers on a first-come, first-served basis through local hotels and lodges in the area when providing mention of the "We Love Our National Park" celebration. These vouchers can then be used throughout the town at local restaurants. Visitors are also encouraged to stop by our Welcome Center for a chance to win more free giveaways and merchandise.
We'd like to express a special "thank you" to our friends at the City of Alamosa, Alamosa County, and San Luis Valley Bank for their generous contributions to this event!
Special Events at the Dunes
A series of special events will be held throughout the month at both the Great Sand Dunes National Park and our Welcome Center.
