This report contains the results of research into the supply and demand of urban oriented nonreservoir recreation. It is an interim report on an initial phase of a comprehensive effort underway within the Corps to develop methodologies, procedures, and guidance for the estimation of recreation use and benefits for nonreservoir water resource development projects. The specific objectives of this research were to develop a data base on use and users of urban recreation facilities which are water related but not reservoir projects, and to prepare estimating equations which produce reasonable and supportable estimates of recreation use and demand. The analysis models and methodology for use prediction and benefit estimation developed through this phase of research need to be duplicated and validated in other locations to ensure general applicability in recreational water resource planning.
