A guide to managing urban parks, this volume begins with an examination of the function of parks and relative legislation. It goes on to cover such topics as marketing and risk management and includes sections on environmental issues.
This is designed to be an accessible, comprehensive guide to the strategic and practical issues behind successful parks management. It looks at parks management in relation to the growing concern for the environment, and the questions and issues raised by the introduction of compulsory competitive tendering. It caters for the Parks and Amenity Management specialism option for the ILAM Certificate and should also be useful for managers of parks and urban green areas, students of the Institute of Leisure and Amenity Management, ILAM members and management personnel working in pubic sector leisure service departments and students of Landscape Design/Management and Land Economy and Estate Management.
