NRPA Park Metrics: Agency Performance Resources

The typical park and recreation agency offers one park for every 2,277 residents served, with 9.5 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 benchmark data to best identify the best practices to optimally serve your community.

NRPA Park Metrics are the most comprehensive source of data standards and insights for park and recreation agencies. Launched in 2009 and previously known as PRORAGIS, these agency performance resources assist park and recreation professionals in the effective management and planning of their operating resources and capital facilities. This suite of tools allows park and recreation agencies to build customized reports that allow for comparisons with peer agencies. Park and recreation professionals can use this benchmark data to gain more funding support, improve operations and better serve their communities.
