Because aging infrastructure, deferred maintenance and limited funding is a universal challenge, the Pennsylvania Recreation and Park Society has established the Park Maintenance Institute, a subscription-based service that provides the latest park maintenance, facilities and grounds management, and operations techniques, tools, and strategies in the form of an online resource and networking center, skill development workshops and webinars, and digital news.
The Institute provides innovative, sustainable solutions park professionals want and need to provide clean, safe, and ready-to-use parks and facilities, whether they’re focused on preservation or restoration. In their recent offerings, they’ve engaged participants from over 30 different states, 2 Canadian provinces, and South Africa. Read more below about the offerings provided to you as a League member.
The Park Maintenance Institute is an essential resource developed to help community parks and recreation agencies with the latest tools, techniques and strategies for efficient facilities and grounds maintenance in parks and public spaces.
