WCNP announces free entry during SANParks Week 12-16 September 2011
West Coast National Park (WCNP) is opening its doors for Heritage Month during the South African National Parks (SANParks) Week, taking place from 12 to 16 September. During this week, all National Parks are offering free, open access to all – to celebrate the rich and diverse heritage that is often just on our doorstep.
The theme this year for SANParks Week is “Know your National Parks” and West Coast National Park is inviting all South Africans to take a drive up the West Coast to take in the unmatched beauty of this coastal park.
Witness the flowers in full bloom in the Postberg section of the park or pay a visit to the recently launched Preetstoel Education Centre on the banks of the lagoon. Join in the fun on Saturday 17 September for the Langebaan Soccer Tournament taking place in the Geelbek section of the park or join the National Heritage Day celebrations later in the month on 24 September for presentations, entertainment and a historical dune hike.
First National Bank (FNB) has sponsored SANParks for the week’s activities and each of the 19 national parks have developed unique plans for celebrating the week, including career guidance exhibitions; hiking trails; photography competitions; exhibitions on various activities around the parks; game drives; evening boma braais; story telling sessions; sports activities, give-aways, pensioners day, and wild walks for school children.
