Palisades Interstate Park Commission

Permanent URI for this collection

The Palisades Interstate Park Commission is among the oldest and most successful public/private partnerships in the nation. A federally chartered bi-state system with jurisdiction over 20 state parks and eight historic sites, the Commission is comprised of five commissioners from New York and five commissioners from New Jersey, each appointed by that state's governor to staggered five-year terms. Preservation, education, and recreation form the core of the Commission's services. Since its inception in 1900, more than 110,000 acres of forest, wildlife habitats, and cultural resources in New York and New Jersey have been entrusted to us. We greet more than nine million visitors each year.
