Kings Canyon National Park
In 1940, Congress and President Franklin D. Roosevelt created a new national park to include the glacially-formed splendor of Kings Canyon. Kings Canyon National Park subsumed the former, smaller General Grant National Park.
Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park are contiguous. Since the Second World War, Kings Canyon and Sequoia have been administered jointly. They are administered by the National Park Service together as the Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks.
