Redwood National and State Parks)

Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park is a state park located in California. The park, established in 1927,[1] is 6,400 acres (26 km2) with approximately 50% old-growth coast redwood and 8 miles (13 km) of wild coastline. The park is a World Heritage Site & Biosphere Preserve.[2]

In 2007, the Mill Creek addition to the park increased its size by 25,000 acres (100 km2). This elevates the park to the 5th largest in the state park system. The addition automatically increased Redwood National and State Parks as well.[3]

Proposed for closure in 2008

A proposal to close a portion of this park places it on the list of the 48 California state parks proposed for closure in January 2008 by California's Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as part of a deficit reduction program since rescinded following public outcry.[4]
