    Description

    Benefits-based management is an approach to park and recreation management that focuses on the positive outcomes of engaging in recreational experiences. Because one class of possible benefits accrue to the community, a philosophical framework is discussed suggesting that communities are themselves the primary sources, generators, and repositories of knowledge. Communities are valuable sources of information about their own needs, and are important players in benefits-based management. A strategy is described to provide an overview of the needs of two communities within the city of Portland, Oregon, and the usefulness of this information to implementing a benefits-based management approach.
