The Elevate Tuscaloosa project is a research collaboration with the City of Tuscaloosa’s Office of Urban development. The project focused on examining perceptions of residents about the parks and recreation facilities in Tuscaloosa. Drs. Daquin and Dunlap developed and administered the survey to Tuscaloosa residents.
Project goals included:
(1) identifying how residents use parks and recreation facilities,
(2) understanding why some residents do not use the parks, and
(3) identifying amenities and features residents would like to see added/changed in existing facilities.
