The significance of four attributes of outdoor recreation relative to a consideration of urban redevelopment forms the focus of this paper. Data on the public's desires for specific recreational facility qualities and activities and the socio-economic characteristics of households are used to develop implications for urban redevelopment policy. Some effects of household income level, car availability, and place of residence are examined as examples. Conclusions are based on a possible set of public responses and emphasize the need for a fuller appreciation of the role of outdoor recreation in policy determination.
