We all know the importance of demographics—it’s vital for knowing who we serve and where they are. Getting that information—especially detailed, facility-specific information—isn’t always easy, though.
Recognizing this need, NRPA has created a new tool for your agency to better understand its facilities and constituents. NPRA Facility Market Reports, sponsored by Playworld, offer park and recreation professionals key data and insights about the market served by their agency’s park and recreation facilities. The reports include information about the size of the market, age trends and more.
As you know, NRPA's Field Report is the most comprehensive collection of detailed park and recreation agency data, presenting information about local and regional park agencies and state park systems from across the United States.
Parks today aren’t what they were ten years ago. Where people used to utilize parks as a place to throw a frisbee with friends, have a picnic or just enjoy some quiet time with a book, today city residents are looking for a more social experience from parks, with formal programming like yoga, movie nights and lawn games.
Given these increasing demands, how can we create and manage parks in a way that meets the public’s expectations?
