Are there any maps that show the portion of the Gateway Arch National Park on the east side of the Mississippi River? I see a news release that says legislation authorized the acquisition of 100 acres on the east bank, but I can't find any indication that it was actually acquired.

https://www.nps.gov/maps/tools/npmap-builder/map/ is a map hosted and updated by the NPS with boundaries of all NPS-managed sites. It shows the full Gateway Arch map. Alternatively, Gateway Arch was merely a redesignation of the Jefferson Expansion National Memorial, for which maps should be more readily available.

The arch and the park that surrounds it was declared to be one of the 61 flagship National Parks in 2018. Previously, it was a National Memorial, though it was and remains under the jurisdiction of the National Parks Service.

Dry Tortugas is in the Gulf of Mexico. Are we counting that as "touching the Atlantic"?

Yes. I believe it is standard operating procedure on Jetpunk to count marginal seas as part of the oceans to which they are attached.

Nice variation, however it would have been an advantage if you had stated that the answers were all National Parks in the USA
