Planning For Recreational Services: A Theoretical Framework (in Arabic)

Auther : Abdul-Ilah Abu Ayyash

Recreational services are integral parts of urban activities in most cities of the world. Modernity and urbanism in todays urban centers are measured, somehow, in terms of the availability of recreational facilities to their population.

Recreational services are distributed geographically at four levels. The first level identifies sevices in neighborhoods. The second level exists in local areas. At the third level, recreational services are distributed at a regional scale to serve wider sectors of individuals and groups. The fourth level refers to recreational activities at a national scale.

The availability of these diferent types of recreational facilities to the public depends on the way such services are arranged spatially. The balanced distribution of such activities depends on the success of the adopted plan in fulfilling the required goals and policies.

To achieve the objectives of recreational planning, and to secure a balanced distribution of recreational activities, the following steps must be followed:

1. objective formulation. Planners should state their objectives clearly. This should be done in light of the adopted public or private policies.

2. Geographic survey. The potential of recreational development cannot be evaluated without scanning the natural endowment of the environment, this is essential for determining the locations of such activities.

3. Modeling and prediction. The complexity of environmental interrelationship necessitates sophisticated models for accurate prediction of future change.

4. Plane formulation. Plans should be set up according to short-term and long-term strategies which will be able to satisfy the community needs.

5. Alternative selection. The rationality of planning necessitates determining the course of action. This entails the selection of the alternative which achieves most of the adopted goals.

6. Plan implementation. At the final stage of planning, officials must decide upon the most appropriate plane. Once such a decision is made the plan for recreational development must e implemented in the world of reality.
