What are your Orlando movers doing on Monday? We’re going for a walk in the park, of course! The Florida Park Service and Lake County Library System’s Adult Literacy Program are teaming up for International Literacy Day by giving certain visitors free admission to the state park system for one day only. All you need to go is a library card, checked out book, or a gently used book for donation.
Check out Lake Griffin State Park to see one of the state’s largest oak trees or one of the state’s largest lakes. Those adventurous enough can kayak or canoe, but beware a very healthy population of alligators. There’s also a nature trail, fishing, and camping for those wanting to have fun without being chomped.
For something a little closer, try Wekiwa Springs State Park, with a larger variety of camping options, swimming and snorkeling, and a wealth of wildlife varieties to pull out the binoculars for. The Wekiwa location is quite popular, and it’s unknown whether the free admission will boost occupancy to or above weekend levels. It’s best to be safe and arrive early.
