$14 Centennial State Park Pass Offers Colorado Underserved Communities Outdoor Opportunities

DENVER ~ Today, Governor Polis and Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) announced the Centennial State Park Pass opportunities available for Colorado residents. The $14 pass is designed to reduce barriers and provide income-eligible Colorado residents with a lower-cost park pass to visit Colorado state parks.

"The $14 state parks pass builds upon our work to save people money and make sure every Coloradan can access and enjoy Colorado's fun, beautiful outdoors," said Gov. Polis.

CPW's annual $14 Centennial State Park Pass is valid from March 1 through March 31 of the following year (13 months). A Centennial State Park Pass holder, along with other vehicle occupants, can enter any Colorado state park in the vehicle of their choice. To apply, a resident must show a Colorado photo identification card, complete an application and meet the 2023 income requirements. Residents who are eligible for certain state and federal aid programs, regardless of income requirements, also qualify for a Centennial State Park Pass.
