A National Park Celebration

We 🧡 Our 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 20-28, 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.
