Our national parks are places of expansive natural beauty, where we can go to appreciate wide open spaces. But there’s a practical matter of balancing that openness with access that comes with preserving these parks and making them open to the public. Roads into, through and within our national parks provide sweeping vistas and allow thousands of visitors to enjoy the parks annually. And parkways with ties to the National Park Service dot the D.C. region. We talk about the history of these roads and consider their role in allowing access throughout the region.
