Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains documents related to the State-County Parks and Beaches Association, including administration, reports, and correspondence related to the acquisition of lands to be designated as state parks or beaches.
The State-County Parks and Beaches Association began in 1928 under the name of the San Diego County State Parks Committee. The Association strived to acquire land to be designated as state parks and beaches, and worked closely with the state of California. The Association worked with local land holders who were interested in donating parcels of land to the state, surveyed land for acquisition, worked to pass state park bond issues in San Diego County, and created a campaign committee to help rally public support for parks. The Association worked primarily to secure lands that later became Agua Hedionda Estuary Beach, Borrego Palm Canyon, Mission Bay Park, Mount San Jacinto State Park, Palomar Mountain State Park, and Silver Strand State Beach.
