You can join online, by phone or at the gate on the day of the event and get in free. Even if you don’t get your cards in time you will receive free admission to the event because the gate will have an up to date list of current members. If you pay to get in and decide you want to join, you can apply your gate fee to your membership fee as long as you join BEFORE YOU LEAVE THAT DAY.
Landmark Park is a “Stamp Site” for those participating in the Bicentennial Passport program. Passport books are available in the Gift Shop here for $10. You can get your Passport stamped in the Gift Shop.
Handicapped accessibility: Most of this event is outside over uneven terrain. We have a limited number of wheelchairs available but they are not suited for outdoor terrain—they can be used in the building and on the boardwalk. Handicapped parking is available. There are ramps on most of the buildings making them handicapped accessible.
Pets are not allowed (unless service animal)
