June 2024 – Parks & Recreation - 51

esports, many college and university
settings now include dedicated
esports suites equipped with
egaming tables, lounge areas and
simulated gaming environments.
As technology advances, we can
anticipate the emergence of virtual
reality and extended reality gaming
experiences.
In addition, touch-screen information
monitors will become commonplace,
offering self-help resources
for program information,
class schedules, court availability
and fitness equipment status. This
addition not only enhances convenience,
but also helps reduce staffing
costs.
Outdoor Courts and
Multipurpose Fields
Like indoor courts, lining outdoor
courts for different sports allows
multicourt use. This way, a court
can accommodate activities, such as
basketball, volleyball and pickleball.
For multipurpose
playfields,
the selection of artificial turf over
natural grass is a balancing act.
Facility administration and design
consultants first must analyze
the full costs and benefits of these
two field surfaces. Multipurpose
fields should yield benefits, such
as year-round use, limited maintenance,
low risk of injury and low
environmental impact while taking
into account health considerations
and the full life-cycle cost analysis.
After
these
considerations, they
can make the best choice for their
unique community.
Looking Forward
As our society's needs evolve and
technology advances, so should our
community hubs. By understanding
and adapting to these developments,
park and recreation leaders can provide
facilities that remain relevant
to their community and evolve efficiently
for years to come.
