GP RED Technology-Based Recreational Activities

Page One

As part of GP RED’s ongoing efforts to collect and share information of interest to practitioners in parks, recreation, and health, we would like to send you three brief surveys in the next several weeks.  The primary topic of the surveys is technology and evolving equipment usage in parks and recreational spaces and facilities. Specifically, we will be asking you about:

  • Drones (Survey #1 - this survey was sent on September 15, 2017 and is still open if you would like to add your response).  For preliminary results, click here or go to the GP RED webpage.
  • Other developing technology-based activities like geo-caching, Pokemon, Instagram and other social media-based information-sharing modes that are changing behavior and creating new demands on facilities and resources (Survey #2 - the questionnaire that follows).
  • Electric/motorized Bikes (Survey #3).

The surveys are short and should take just a few minutes to answer. All responses are anonymous. We at GP RED greatly appreciate your participation and will send you a summary of key findings and evolving best practices immediately following the conclusion of this surveying effort.
