METHOD OF ALLOCATING RECREATION SUPPLY TO URBAN CENTRES

This method is used by the Ontario outdoor recreation planners for deciding their expenditure priorities. It allows for detecting the potential allocation of the province's recreational supply to its urban centers, by simulating the competition that takes place given simple assumptions. It was considered that the only supply effectively available to an urban conglomeration was the amount included in its K-hour travel zone -- K being two hours for day trips and three for weekend trips; and that the population of the various urban centers compete for the use of the same opportunities, in proportion to their population pressures and in inverse proportion to a function of the travel time.
