Outdoor recreation like jogging, biking, camping, boating, fishing, etc. is an important and meaningful part of many people’s lives. At the same time, managing parks and natural places for both people and nature presents special challenges. In some cases, there may be conflicts among recreationists and some recreational uses can also take a toll on the environment.
We study outdoor recreation in order to understand the meaning of these recreation activities in people’s lives and to think about how different recreation needs and priorities can be accommodated in public spaces. Therefore, managing parks and natural places for both people and nature presents special challenges.
