Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park is a state park of California, USA, and a component of the Redwood National and State Parks. The property is about half old-growth forest of coast redwoods and includes 8 miles (13 km) of wild Pacific coastline.[1] The park was significantly expanded in 2002 with the 25,000-acre (10,000 ha) Mill Creek Addition.[2] Originally established in 1925, the park is now 31,261 acres (12,651 ha).[3]

Proposals for closure

A proposal to close a portion of this park placed it on the list of 48 California state parks proposed for closure in January 2008 by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as part of a deficit reduction program. The decision was rescinded following public outcry.[4] However in May 2011 the park was one of 70 state parks threatened with closure.[5] In October 2011 the National Park Service agreed to provisionally take over management of Del Norte Coast Redwoods for one year.[6]
