Abstract

A nationwide survey of municipal park and recreation administrators was conducted to gain professional input on two major issues: (I) the effect of "New Federalism" on local departmental operation, and (2) the opinions of administrators on strategies for departments operating in an era of fiscal stress.This article is based on a paper prepared for a workshop entitled "Parks and Recreation 90: Public Parks and Recreation in the Next Decade" held in St. Louis, Missouri in September 1985 under the sponsorship of the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration.
