Report Card for Pennsylvania's Infrastructure Featured Category - Parks and Recreation
The Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan 2014-2019 found state parks require $783 million to bring the system back to a state of good repair.
Pennsylvania is home to more than 3.75 million acres of dedicated parks and recreational areas, including national trails and areas, recreational reservoirs and numerous county, municipal, and city parks. Overall capacity grew to accommodate the 44.5 million parks visitors in 2017 and the Commonwealth ranked fifth in the nation for how much users spend on outdoor recreation. However, national, state and local parks have significant needs. The Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan 2014-2019 found state parks require $783 million to bring the system back to a state of good repair. The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) has embraced new funding methods, via the Marcellus shale gas operation, and implemented long-range planning strategies like the PA Outdoor Recreation Plan. While overall state-wide funding may be holding strong, fluctuating budgets put some municipalities in a difficult position when trying to keep up with their increased needs.
