Canyonlands National Park, located near Moab, Utah and Arches National Park, was designated as a National Park on September 12, 1964. The park covers 527.5 mi² (1,366 km²).
Canyons carved into the Colorado Plateau by the Colorado River and Green River partition the area into three major districts:
* Island in the Sky to the north
* The Needles to the south-east
* The Maze to the west
In addition to the three major districts there is a detached unit to the north, called the Horseshoe Canyon Unit.
