Overview

Completely revised and expanded, this new edition is an invaluable guide for anyone involved in the planning and design of recreation and sport facilities and open spaces. It provides a solid introduction to this multifaceted topic and a wealth of practical information you can use to guide your efforts, whether you're planning a walking trail, professional sports arena, or other facility.

New and updated content in this edition includes the following:
-A new chapter on coastal recreation planning and management to help communities and developers locate and plan recreational facilities that support a variety of activities, promote safety, and use the natural beauty of the coast without damaging the environment.

-A chapter on the personal, social, economic, and environmental benefits of recreation and sport.

-Expanded coverage of facility planning and design issues, including new sections on swimming pool design and skateboarding facilities.

-Full-color photos showing the 10 best examples of recreation and sport planning and design in Australia, of special interest due to Australia's preparations for hosting the 2000 Olympics.

-Accurate dimensions and more than 50 sample layouts for a wide variety of sport and recreation facilities, including seven new sports not featured in the first edition.
A key issue identified in the book is consultation. There are many stakeholders involved in the creation of any recreation or sport facility, and it can be a real challenge to make sure the end result meets the needs of those who initiated the project. The author describes how to communicate effectively with consultants, financers, architects, community groups, and government officials throughout the planning and development process in order to ensure success. Other exceptional features of the book include
-A chapter on the benefits of recreation and sport;

-an overview of recreation open space legislation and official planning documents, plus open space templates to assist local, district, and regional people with early planning;

-sections on facility management and fundraising that identify key factors to help keep a facility operating smoothly; and

-numerous helpful appendixes, including sample planning documents and a detailed index for easy reference.
Recreation and Sport Planning and Design is commended by the South Australian Office for Recreation and Sport of South Australia. No other book provides such broad coverage of the practical and theoretical issues that go into planning recreation and sport facilities and open spaces that are appealing, safe, and popular.
