A national park is a protected area of land open to the general public, and maintained by the government. In the United States, the National Park Service is responsible for the care and upkeep of our national parks.

Many national parks contain a noteworthy landmark, such as the Grand Canyon in Grand Canyon National Park, and the Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park.

In Britain National Parks are different. The land often belongs to private owners but there are restrictions on what owners can do to preserve whatever is considered outstanding there.
