Grand Canyon National Park encompasses canyons, river tributaries, and surrounding grounds. The Grand Canyon is situated in Arizona’s northwestern quadrant. The Grand Canyon had a long and arduous road to becoming a national park, beginning in the 1880s. After making multiple visits to the area, Theodore Roosevelt declared the Grand Canyon a National Monument in 1908. The bill to grant national park status to the area was passed in 1919 and signed by then-President Woodrow Wilson.
In addition, the park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.
