Abstract: This study explores how community members perceive Pacific Spirit Regional Park and their recommendations for enhancing experiences within the park. Using an exploratory approach to engage ten Pacific Spirit Regional Park users, usage, behaviour, preferences, concerns, and recommendations were discussed with emphasis on participants’ perceptions of safety in the park. In a small focus group, participants provided additional insights into the presented recommendations. Recommendations fell into the categories of terrain and physical environment, accessibility, people in the park, and park watch. The study serves as a case study for other park organizations wishing to explore context-specific insights into enhanced experiences. It concludes by providing a list of recommendations for Metro Vancouver Regional Parks to consider.
