Even though the snow is starting to fall, Kalamazoo County Parks suggests you should plan ahead and give the gift of outdoors, this Christmas season. Kalamazoo County Park passes for the 2022 season are available as gifts for the holidays and from now until Christmas, outdoor enthusiasts will receive a FREE County Parks water bottle, while supplies last.

According to a press release from Kalamazoo County, to receive the water bottle, passes must be purchased at the Parks Department office located in the Kalamazoo County Expo Center at 2900 Lake Street. The cost is $25.00 for a regular pass or $20.00 for a senior pass. The passes will be valid for the remainder of the 2021 season and all of 2022.
