State of the Park Report

In 1916, the public entrusted the National Park Service with the care of our most special places – places that preserve the natural and cultural history of America for everyone to experience.

We take this responsibility seriously and want to make sure that we are doing what is necessary to protect parks for future genenrations. So, scientists and managers across the country are creating State of the Park Reports to evaluate and communicate park conditions in a clear and simple way.

Here at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, our report provides:

  • a snapshot of the status and trend in the condition of the park's most important resources and values
  • a summary of complex scientific, scholarly, and park operations information
  • highlights of our stewardship activities and accomplishments
  • key issues and challenges facing park manager

We will use this report to guide decisions and priorities in the future. We hope you'll join us in our effort to preserve Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park.
