Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park is a relatively new unit of the National Park Service. The park is growing and it continues to develop its facilities and expand upon visitor services. With the acquisition of the Resaca de la Palma Battlefield property, park activities and services will increase dramatically during the coming years. This is an opportunity to watch a National Park Service unit take shape.
The park encourages visitors to stop by the visitor center, walk the trails, and participate in the development of this nationally important site.
