    Towns, yes. Cities...unlikely. There are plenty of national parks (and memorials) in cities (most of the national mall in DC, the national parks of NY Harbor, and so on). But the other way around, no. The larger national parks, though, tend to have park villages, where park and concession workers live Grand Canyon has one of the largest (maybe The largest, I don't know), with 2 or 3 thousand population, and K-12 school. It has to do with whether or not it is possible to hire locally, or within a reasonable commute. Death Valley houses over half its staff internally, because the nearest communities are 50 to 60 miles away.

    Well, usually the National Parks are in a certain city or overlap several cities if big enough.

    Not sure if that is exactly what you are asking.

    There are lodging and facilities that are located within National Parks, just depends on the actual Park and the type of facilities/businesses you are looking for.
