Abstract/Contents:"The scarcity of recreational land in densely populated areas is a common problem for municipalities. Where land with recreation potential is available for acquisition, park departments often must compete for acquisition with business and residential developers. These practical considerations often dictate that parks be located away from major population centers. The choice is simply between developing a new recreation facilitiy in an outlying area or not developing one at all. But municipalities willing to go the extra mile in improving their park system should be aware that other options are sometimes open to them. A case in point is development by the Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission of Red Oaks, an executive nine-hole golf course situated in densely populated Southeastern Michigan."
