State Parks’ Central Valley Vision

California State Park Director Ruth Coleman announced today (April 6, 2005) that several public outreach meetings will be held to introduce more California residents to parks and recreation opportunities that are available in the Central Valley.

The strategy is known as “State Parks’ Central Valley Vision.” Coleman said she intends through this 20-year roadmap to increase the presence of California State Parks in the Central Valley both to meet the needs of Valley residents, and for protection and interpretation of “incredible natural, cultural, historical and recreational resources found only in the Valley.”

Colonel Allensworth SHP is just one of the Central Valley’s 32 State Park units.
