Description


In today's society it can be hidden beliefs that guide the management of parks, treating them as natural resources rather than national assets. These current management approaches often lead to deferred maintenance on park infrastructure, causing inadequate protection from vandalism, poaching and theft of artifacts. A sad demise, often due to an outdated belief that parks are non-essential leisure services rather than necessities for a vibrant modern life. This book will dispel the lethargy of the parks profession by challenging readers to reconsider their beliefs about parks and their purpose in modern life.
