(Hartford, Conn./ CBS Connecticut) – The state is encouraging residents to take advantage of a free parks weekend.

Today and tomorrow, admission to connecticut parks and forests is free.

It’s part of Connecticut’s centennial celebration of its parks system.

All parking fees and fees at museums, as well, will be waived.

During a news conference this week at Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden, officials announced the plan.

Governor Dannel Malloy says there are 107 state parks from which to choose.

Malloy urged folks planning to hit a park to get there early.

The run of great weekend weather has led parks to fill up quickly.

Commissioner Rob Klee of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection advises visiting one of the smaller parks the state has to offer so as not to get shut out.
