“The Park Pass can be used to visit all the attractions over one incredible week or long weekend, or visitors can spread their trips throughout the entire year,” said Bob Whitt, White River State Park executive director. “Either way, folks get to enjoy our fabulous attractions and amenities at more than 25 percent off regular admission.”
