2015 MVP

The 2015 Motor Vehicle Permits (MVPs) are available October 1, 2014, and are valid through December 31, 2015. The price of the annual MVP is $10 and includes the Great Parks Bonus Pack, which gives $15 in discounts on golf, boating, fishing, camping, wet playgrounds, special events and more.
