About this book

Design for Outdoor Recreation takes a detailed look at all aspects of design of facilities needed by visitors to outdoor recreation destinations. The book is designed as a manual for planners, designers and managers of recreation taking them through the processes of design and enabling them to find the most appropriate balance between visitor needs and the capacity of the landscape.

A range of different aspects are covered including car parking, information signing, hiking, waterside activities, wildlife watching and camping.

This second edition seeks to extend and update the first with the incorporation of new examples from around the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Eastern Europe as well as an emphasis on more current issues such as accessibility and the changing demands for recreational use. Fully illustrated throughout, the new edition also includes updated photographs and illustrations of a wide range of locations.
