Posted: Monday, Mar 11th, 2013

PINNACLES NATIONAL PARK — A new National Park Service report for 2011 shows that the 393,219 visitors to Pinnacles National Monument, which has since become a national park, spent $8,415,000 in communities surrounding the park. This spending supported 98 jobs in the local area.

“Pinnacles National Park is a wonderful place to get away and recreate or relax in a wild setting,” said park superintendent Karen Beppler-Dorn. “We attract visitors from across the U.S. and around the world who come here to experience the park and then spend time enjoying our neighboring communities and getting to know this amazing part of the country. The National Park Service is proud to have been entrusted with the care of America’s most treasured places and delighted that the visitors we welcome generate significant contributions to the local, state, and national economy.”
