Restore America’s Parks

The Pew Charitable Trusts’ parks campaign, Restore America’s Parks, aims to raise awareness about the National Park System’s deferred maintenance backlog and to secure permanent funding with the National Park Service Legacy Act to address park maintenance needs and ensure that the park service is equipped for success as it heads into its second century.

Deferred maintenance is estimated at $11.3 billion nationally, with approximately $253 million in Florida.

In 2016, more than 10 million visitors enjoyed national parks in Florida, adding a cumulative benefit of $949.1 million to the state economy and supporting almost 10,000 jobs.
