Another strange sign from across the pond . . . .
The First Amendment states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
I don't know exactly what the The National Park Service is afraid of but notice how it differs from the kind of sign that might be expected in National Parks in England. These would be full of prohibitions; no litter, no picnicking, no barbecues etc.
I like the font they've used. Very 'Art Deco'.
