GRASP® 'Geo-Referenced Amenities Standards Process' Methodology
A proprietary parks planning tool to identify gaps and make recommendations for recreation and open space needs
What is GRASP?
A Research-based Planning and Design Tool
GRASP® is a proprietary methodology that stands for “Geo-Referenced Amenities Standards Process.” Developed along with GreenPlay, LLC, we use this process with municipalities across the country to assess existing park and recreation systems. Findings from the analysis process identify gaps and make recommendations for future parks, recreation and open space needs.
Quantifiable Justification for Future Park Planning
The interrelationship and connections of parks systems and access to open space is an important piece of park planning. It’s a complex understanding of quantity, quality, accessibility, types of amenities, demographics and socioeconomic conditions. This quantifiable assessment tool provides rationale-based arguments for future park planning and design.
