Year after year, we here at NRPA continue to learn, grow and improve using the feedback we receive from our Annual Conference Attendee Survey. This year is no different. Thanks to the nearly 1,100 conference attendees that evaluated, ranked and commented on their experience, we walk away confidently knowing the 2016 NRPA Annual Conference in St. Louis was a success. Here is what you said.
The NRPA Research Team released the results of the Americans’
Engagement with Parks survey in October at this year’s NRPA Annual Conference in St.
Louis. This new annual study surveyed 1,000 Americans ages 18+ and takes a
closer look at the many ways Americans use their parks as well as issues and
concerns surrounding the field of parks and recreation. The survey found that nearly half (47 percent) of the
respondents or a member(s) of their household had participated in a park and recreation offering or program between
the time of late-May to late-August. But that does not tell the full story.
