California has announced that it will be closing 70 of its 278 state parks as a result of deep budget cuts. In choosing which parks to cut, the state looked at several factors including overall attendance numbers and historical significance.
In a press release, the California Parks and Recreation Department said the strategic cuts made will allow it to retain 92 percent of annual attendance and 94 percent of its current revenue.
Notable parks among those cut include Fort Humboldt State Historic Park, the Governor’s Mansion, and Sugarloaf Ridge.
