The typical park and recreation agency offers one park for every 2,266 residents served, with 9.6 acres of parkland per 1,000 residents. But park and recreation agencies are as diverse as the communities that they serve, and what works well for one agency may not be best for your agency. Therefore, you need data to best identify the best practices to optimally serve your community.

That’s where the 2017 NRPA Agency Performance Review  comes in. This report is the most comprehensive resource of data and insights for park and recreation agencies in the United States, and has 21 figures highlighting critical park and recreation metrics.
