Can we retrieve accidentally "overwritten" parks?

So I was not paying attention and saved a current park into the wrong sandbox-park file, thus practically deleting the older park.
Is there a way to find and access old autosaves, even if they are not visible in the menu?
 
This is why the game needs to have an organize option for us to create our own custom folders :( Custom folders for organizing saves was possible in RCT1/2 but not RCT3/PC and it has been requested many times but probably will never happen :(

Unfortunately parks that are overwritten cannot be recovered.

That being said, I recommend that players make a manual backup of their saved parks folder, so that they can restore a park in the event of unfortunate situations like this.

Parks and other important game data are stored here;

Location of local Planet Coaster game files
  • Saved parks, blueprints and campaign progress
    "%userprofile%\Saved Games\Frontier Developments\Planet Coaster\12345678901234567\Saves"
  • Campaign progress
    "%userprofile%\Saved Games\Frontier Developments\Planet Coaster\12345678901234567\Saves\uniqsave_player-"
  • Game settings (audio, controls, game specific like recently used items and autosave interval)
    "%userprofile%\Saved Games\Frontier Developments\Planet Coaster\12345678901234567\Config"
  • Game settings (GUI version, GUI scale, graphics and performance rating check)
    "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Frontier Developments\Planet Coaster\Config_Local"
  • Billboard images and webm-videos
    "%userprofile%\Documents\Frontier Developments\Planet Coaster\UserMedia"
  • Custom music
    "%userprofile%\Documents\Frontier Developments\Planet Coaster\UserMusic"
  • Downloaded items from the Steam Workshop
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\493340"
Additional info
  • Replace "12345678901234567" by the unique number of your Steam ID.
  • Replace "Saved Games" by the folder name used in your version of Windows if you are not using an English version of Windows (for example, Dutch translation for Saved Games = Opgeslagen spellen).
  • Replace "Documents" by the folder name used in your version of Windows if you are not using an English version of Windows (for example, Dutch translation for Documents = Documenten).
  • You can paste the address without quotes in the address bar to open the folder.
  • The location of downloaded items from the workshop may vary depending on the location of the Steam installation.
