Recreation Facility Management, Second Edition With HKPropel Access, is the fundamental text for students and new professionals who will manage a recreational facility. It outlines essential responsibilities and prepares readers to perform the duties of a manager for various types of facilities—ranging from recreation and aquatic centers, playgrounds, and parks to fitness centers, golf courses, and sport complexes—each with its own unique set of goals and challenges.

Recreation Facility Management begins by defining the characteristics and expectations of the profession. It discusses the facility design and development process, including assessing needs, planning, reading blueprints, and securing funding. Topics such as facility resource management, financial issues, and human resources are explored in depth. The text then tackles strategies for utilizing facilities in a safe and efficient manner, addressing safety and security, maintenance, and emergency preparedness and response plans. Finally, a detailed examination of the operation of common types of recreation facilities is offered alongside coverage of national industry standards and guidelines.

Content updates to the second edition include a new chapter on ancillary space design with a focus on sustainability and technology updates as well as accessible design. A chapter was also added to address larger-scale recreational sport events and outdoor facilities. Recreation Facility Management also includes new enhancements to help students apply and retain important information::
