The article discusses the conditions of the state parks in California. Disintegration of state parks are said to be witnessed throughout the Western region of the U.S., with the conditions greatly affected by the recession. It notes that among the states, California have experienced the most dramatic decline of state parks, with a predicted 100 out of 279 parks in the state that may possibly be closed. State park buildings and parkland preserves are at risk if rules for state-managed lands will not be imposed. With this, the Department of Parks and Recreation in California are organizing campaigns and measures to prevent the deterioration of the parks. Further discussed are the conditions of some state parks in California including the San Timoteo Canyon and Wildwood Canyon State Park.
