Chat Session Description:

Last week NRPA shared NPR’s coverage of private fitness trainers using parks and recreation spaces and the discussion that arises as the result of this use.  Many of you have joined in the conversation sharing concerns, questions and best practices around this issue. Join us for a live online chat with Dirk Richwine (CPRE), Recreation Superintendent of the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation (NV) who’ll share how they’ve successfully partnered with trainers in a mutually beneficial way.

Topics for discussion: 

  • The reasons to regulate these types of activities
  • The items to consider when developing the program
  • The process including public input, for developing the permit
  • Enforcement and dealing with unauthorized users of parks
