The first land that was actually set aside for a national park was Yosemite Valley in 1864, so that would be Lincoln. However, the first land that Congress acknowledged as a land that would be saved for preservation and watched by the federal government was Yellowstone in 1872. The president at that time was Ulysses S. Grant. The president perhaps the most well-known for his contributions to national parks is Teddy Roosevelt.
The first National Park to be designated was in 1832, under the jurisdiction of Presidentn Andrew Jackson. He attempted to protect the Hot Springs in Arkansas, however, no legal control of the area was enforced until 1877. The next National Park to be protected by the government was in 1964 under President Abraham Lincoln for the area that is now known as Yosemite National Park in California.
