On this episode of the Park Leaders Show, guest co-host, Phil Gaines, returns to discuss why parks should be financially sufficient.
While a complex topic in execution, the bottom line for a park’s financial structure is simple: Each state park should be sufficient to maintain operating expenses including maintenance and personnel. As Phil explains, this implies independence in terms of need provision for visitors and staff and controlling the destiny of the park.
Granted, any state park would benefit from a more business-minded approach to money management. The key for parks, however, is to accomplish this authentically by not sacrificing purpose in the name of business.
