AMP is accessible to public during govt shutdown
During the ongoing shutdown of the federal government due to the lapse of appropriations, national parks will remain as accessible as possible while still following all applicable laws and procedures. Park roads, walking paths, memorials, and the tennis court at American Memorial Park, will remain accessible to visitors, but emergency and rescue services will be limited.

Thanks to a generous donation by the Pacific Historic Parks, the visitor center and bookstore will be open from 9am to 4pm, except last Christmas Day. Restrooms, trash collection, and other daily maintenance will be limited.

Because of the federal government shutdown, NPS social media and websites are not being monitored or updated and may not reflect current conditions. For updates on the shutdown, visit (NPS)
