SPEM 317 Recreational Facility Management and Operations

Recreation facility management is an expansive and complicated subject that can vary greatly with the nature and objective of each facility. This course focuses on recreation facilities and the products and services they provide. Recreation facilities include schools, stadiums, fitness centers, sports complexes, recreation centers, golf courses, water parks, public pools, convention centers, parks, playgrounds, tourism facilities, and theme parks. Tourism facilities, including resorts, hotels, and cruise ships are included in the definition of recreation facilities because these facilities are used by people in their leisure time. Regardless of the type of facility, there are numerous factors that can influence the ability of a recreation facility manager to deliver products and services. Understanding these factors and how to manage resources is the foundation of facility management and requires extensive education and training.
