The Gallipoli Peninsula, which has an area of 33,500 hectares, was included in the "forest regime" on 25.05.1973, with the 7/6477 issued decision of the Council of Ministers, upon the recommendation of the Ministry of Forestry. Then, it was declared a National Park on November 2, 1973, especially due to its historical and natural qualities. By passing a special law in 2000, the status of the Gallipoli Peninsula Historical National Park was differentiated. In June 2014, with the Law No. 6546, the national park qualification was abolished and the Directorate of Gallipoli Historical Site was established.
