What is the point of a National Park in Civ 6?
- It provides tourism equal to the appeal of the tiles included in it, and thus can be an important part of a strategy pursuing a Cultural Victory.

Where do I build a National Park in Civ 6?
The best place to build a National Park is near a Natural Wonder. However, it can also be built in an area where you own 4 tiles in a vertical diamond shape. Further, there needs to be a minimum Appeal of Charming (provided by mountains, coasts or woods).
Is it worth building a National Park in Civ 6?
In most cases, no. National Parks are great if you are pursuing a Cultural Victory as it can produce a strong amount of Tourism. However, if you are not pursuing a Cultural Victory, you are better off using you faith for something that can contribute to your particular victory objectives.
Having said that, a Cultural Victory can be particularly interesting if you are playing Civilization: Gathering Storm, which introduced a feature called Cultural Dominance. Meaning, if you are far ahead of your opposition, you can obtain significant gold benefits (international trade routes provide +4 gold), spy completion rates (50% faster), and more loyalty pressure on neighboring cities (additional 25%).
