The Value of Parks & Recreation - Kirschman
A while back I invited Michael Kirschman from Mecklenburg County Parks & Recreation speak about the True Value of Parks & Recreation. Michael gives this presentation to packed crowds at conferences around the country so we were very lucky to have him speak here. If you wanted to come but just couldn't fit in into your schedule you now have a second chance.
With permission, I've hosted an audio mp3 clip of the presentation as well as a pdf of the original Powerpoint. While the two are not synced, it's easy to follow along as the interface is quite intuitive. You can view and listen without having to download the files.
This is great info; it reiterates the fact that parks benefit the entire community, not just the people who use them.
