Pricing Recreation and Park Services: The Science and the Art provides a scientific foundation to guide pricing decisions confronting managers and elected officials in public parks and recreation agencies.

This book discusses the functions of price in the public sector including equity, efficient allocation, and revenue. It also explores differential pricing and behavioral pricing.

In addition to teaching at the higher education level, the author has conducted many hundreds of workshops on marketing and/or financing leisure services. This book is a must read for managers responsible for pricing decisions and for making recommendations on prices to elected officials and for academics who teach courses or engage in research that addresses pricing issues.
