Description: Every manager of a recreation site needs three essential statistics: man-hours of use, number of visits, and peak loads. Man-hours of use are a good gauge of site wear and tear and service reaquirements. Visits reflect the number of impressions gained by people and hence provide an index to public approval or dissatisfaction, depending upon site condition. Peak load data are the basis of plans for capacity or overload crowds.
