A report with appendices which outlines a proposal to establish an interstate park in the Columbia River Gorge along both sides of the Columbia River. In the report, John B. Yeun, chair of the Pacific Northwest Regional Planning Commission's Columbia Gorge Committee, argues in favor of establishing the park and discusses lands that would need to be purchased to establish the park. The 17 appendices include fold-out maps showing areas of the Gorge, population density in the Pacific Northwest, railroads and highways in the region, land ownership in the Gorge, and soil types in the Gorge; a list of currently owned properties in the Gorge; lists of delinquent taxes for properties to be purchased; photographs; and copies of statements and correspondence of officials regarding the proposed purchase of lands for the park.
