Take Time to Smell the Flowers, Please! Public Gardens and Economic Development
AbstractA model of economic impacts of public gardens on their communities is developed stressing the roles of visitors as well as staff and suppliers in creating impacts. The model is implemented for four different gardens using a combination of survey and normal business data from the gardens with a well-known impact model system.The gardens selected span the major types in terms of metropolitan-nonmetropolitan locations and walk-in vs. destination facilities as well as being located in different regions of the U.S. The results show significant direct and multiplier effects which vary systematically with the typed of facility. The model can be applied to other facilities using a workbook available from the authors.
