With any luck, the winds we've seen this spring will have calmed down by early July. If not, that won't mean that folks still can't enjoy a wonderful summer day at and around City Park.

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
