National Park Service

The Nation­al Park Ser­vice is a bureau of the U.S. Depart­ment of the Inte­ri­or entrust­ed with the care of our nation’s nation­al parks. Gov­er­nors Island Nation­al Mon­u­ment is one of more than 400 spe­cial places in the nation­al park sys­tem saved by the Amer­i­can peo­ple for future gen­er­a­tions. On Gov­er­nors Island, the Nation­al Park Ser­vice pre­serves and pro­tects Cas­tle Williams and Fort Jay; pro­vides edu­ca­tion­al oppor­tu­ni­ties about the coastal defense sto­ry and the harbor’s rich his­to­ry and ecol­o­gy; and works in part­ner­ship with orga­ni­za­tions to pro­mote stew­ard­ship, youth engage­ment, and mem­o­rable experiences.
