Share Your Pictures
National Park Service
Send us a copy of your favorite photograph or drawing that you made of the park. These can be current photos, or older photos. Even though Gateway is 40 years old, the sites that make up Gateway are older, and have been enjoyed by many for a long time. If there is a story attached to the photo or drawing, let us know.
These images may wind up in an online photo gallery, others may find a place in one of our park publications, including brochures and bulletin boards, or on our Facebook page.
Please e-mail us your images.
Before submitting, consider the following:
A national park is a public setting where there can be no expectation of privacy, even for children. It is Gateway's preference that a person's likeness is used with his or her informed consent. If you are donating a photograph where someone's face is recognizable, please verify that he or she is aware of the image and that he or she consents to having it enter the public domain.
