Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park has grown since its establishment in 1992. Over the years the park has made additions to its visitor services and programs. The park’s rich resources provide enjoyment for both the nature enthusiast and history buff.

We suggest you begin your visit at the visitor center and pick up a park brochure and trail guide. Our friendly front desk staff will be happy to give you an orientation to the park and the surrounding area.

**Update 12/29/20: The visitor center is temporarily closed. However, there is a Ranger Contact Station available at the entrance of the visitor center. The contact station is open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
