Texas A&M Expert Talks on the Future of Recreation

Texas A&M Expert Talks on the Future of Recreation

Texas A&M Professor, John Crompton, left with American Recreation Coalition President Derrick Crandall. Professor Crompton was the keynote speaker. He spoke about the interconnection between travel and parks, and how parks serve as “economic engines.” He challenged the group to see recreation through a “transformational lens,” repositioning recreation and park services so that they are perceived to be a central contribution to alleviating the major community problems identified by taxpayers and decision-makers.
