    Americans Saving American Places (ASAP) - "21st Century American Heritage Places"

    Americans for Our Heritage and Recreation (AHR), a non-profit organization
    From their website: http://www.ahrinfo.org/

    Of the more than 40,000 projects funded through the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and Urban Parks Recreation and Recovery Program (UPARR), the 2004 21st Century American Heritage Places were selected because they met the following criteria:

    Provide close-to-home, publicly accessible recreation that encourages smart growth;
    Demonstrate funding partnerships among federal, state, local, and private entities;
    Shed light on the unique cultural, natural, and historical heritage of America's parks;
    Offer a diversity of conservation and recreational opportunities; and
    Meet specific recreational and physical activity needs to nearby communities.
