The property of Gilroy Yamato Hot Springs is part of Henry W. Coe State Park since 2003. Formerly called Friends of Gilroy Hot Springs, since 2013 the Gilroy Yamato Hot Springs group exists under the protective umbrella of the Pine Ridge Association with a close relationship to the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) District and Sector administration. The Pine Ridge Association (PRA) is the all-volunteer qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit official organization for Henry W. Coe State Park.

PRA provides the non-profit status and benefits, while DPR District and Sector provides authority, guidance, and resources for us to continue on our mission: to protect, preserve, and restore public access to Gilroy Yamato Hot Springs.
