“A task force convened several years ago by County Executive Ron Sims offered smart, practical long-range strategies, including the notion that parks at least partly pay for themselve’s. The 25,000-acre park system is one of the largest in the country. Injecting a measure of efficiency and self-reliance into the system was no small challenge. But it is happening.

The county shifted costs for some pools and parks to suburban cities in which the facilities were located. Fees are charged for parking and entrepreneurial opportunities, such as Cirque du Soleil, are plentiful.”
