The world’s first national park,
Yellowstone, was created by an act of Congress in 1872 as a
“pleasuring ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people
in order to protect for all time this outstanding natural area.”
As Congress created more parks, the need for an agency to
administer the park system became clear, yielding the National
Park Service in 1916. Today, there are more than 380
national parks in America. National parks offer an
excellent opportunity for people to escape the chaos and stress
of everyday life. National parks also include some of the
most scenic vistas in the world, and they provide some of the
last pristine habitat for majestic wildlife species such as the
grizzly bear and the gray wolf. View the Grand Canyon, go
hiking in Yosemite Valley, photograph grizzly bears in Glacier
National Park, or take in some geyser gazing in Yellowstone
National Park. America's national parks offer something
special for everyone, regardless of their interests, beliefs, or
backgrounds. Experience your national parks, and make
memories of a lifetime. Plan your next national park
