The United States National Park is marking its 100th year anniversary this year, 2016, and the celebration, thus, rekindles people's love for nature and outdoors. Parks are important to people for a variety of reasons.
One of the reasons why parks are very important was shared by a retired park superintendent, Gerald Baker via the Ken Burns' documentary, "The National Parks: America's Best Idea" , as reported by Pjstar.com.
"We need national parks to have people - especially our kids - understand what America is."
Baker continued to narrate that:
"America is not sidewalks. America's not stores. America's not video games. America's not restaurants. We need national parks so people can go there and say, 'Ahhhh! This is America.'"
