by Mike West

The National Park Service, a bureau of the U. S. Department of the Interior, celebrated the 100th anniversary of its founding on August 25, 1916. Locally there was a big birthday party held at Flower Park in the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. The CNRA began life as Platt National Park in 1906. It was the seventh national park in America. Flower Park is located in the Platt Historic District — the original national park.
