Park Anniversaries

The National Park Service manages more than 400 individual units, from national parks to national battlefields to national lakeshores and more, all commonly referred to simply as “parks.” Some current parks were set aside for the benefit of the public or preservation before the National Park Service was created in 1916. Others were eventually transferred from another agency.

This table lists the dates parks were created and when they became part of the National Park System.
