The National Mall & Memorial Parks, where America and the World come to reflect, honor and celebrate, presents the symbols of our democratic evolution spread over 1,000 acres in the heart of our Nation’s Capitol. It has been designated a National Park, and is under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service.
What better symbol to mark the reentry of the United States to UNESCO than to nominate the National Mall as a World Heritage Site. The Mall perfectly symbolizes the idea of a democratic nation which is the principle contribution of our nation to the world's cultural heritage.
