Washington State Parks


The Washington State Park System is a set of state parks owned by the government of Washington state. They are managed by the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission.

The parks are primarily funded through the state's general fund, but also by various usage fees. There are over 100 parks throughout the state, including 21 marine parks.

History
The park system was first established in 1913 by the creation of the Washington State Board of Park Commissioners.

The first two parks were formed from donated land in 1915, and by 1929 the state had seven parks. In 1947 the State Parks Committee was renamed to the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and given authority to oversee the state park system.  By 1960 the number of state parks had increased to 130.
