Arizona State Parks (government)
Arizona State Parks is the governing agency of all Arizona state parks. The agency was created in 1955, following the rapid growth of the post-World War II recreation and tourism industries in the American Southwest.

The Phoenix, Arizona-based agency operates with 14 categorized funds, and in fiscal year 2007 had expenditures of $41 million, revenues of $74 million, and a cash asset balance of $199 million (all figures approximate).
