The Friends of Kings Gap is a non-profit organization of dedicated volunteers working to support, protect, and enhance Kings Gap State Park and its programs. Please take some time to explore our Web site to see what is happening at Kings Gap State Park and with the Friends group.
Come see the newly installed Water Cooler and Bottle Filler in the lobby of the Environmental Education Center. The Friends of Kings Gap have donated a new water fountain to the Park complete with a water bottle filling station. The new fountain provides filtered water in a traditional “bubbler,” and an easy, touchless water bottle filler to reduce the need for plastic bottles and enhance sustainability. And check out the “Green Ticker” monitor on the cooler that tracks the number of 20 oz. plastic water bottles that have been saved from waste. 169 bottles were saved during one month after installation in the Ed Building on March 28th. Just think how many will be saved during the summer months in the Park. So remember to stop by and fill your bottle when you’re hiking or for other events at Kings Gap. Hydrate and Be Green!
