PLANNING OF OUTDOOR RECREATION AREAS
|Publication Date:||16 January 2004|
The manual discusses the process for preparing an Installation Outdoor Recreation Plan from the evaluation of existing conditions; to the identification of potential recreation areas; to the determination of outdoor recreation needs; to the selection of appropriate outdoor recreation activities; to implementation through the development of a plan for physical improvements. Included in the manual are general considerations for facilities design as well as design criteria for specific outdoor recreation activities. This guidance applies not only to new outdoor recreation areas, but also to renovation and expansion of existing sites.
The purpose of the manual is to provide guidance for Morale Welfare and Recreation Managers, outdoor recreation directors, facilities engineers and designers in planning for outdoor recreation on military installations and in preparing the Installation Outdoor Recreation Plan. The Installation Outdoor Recreation Plan documents existing outdoor recreation on an installation, describes proposed outdoor recreation development, and helps to assure that adequate consideration is given to outdoor recreation during the preparation of the Installation Master Plan.
