apitalizing on our natural assets is nothing new to us park and recreation professionals,
but it's definitely a trend we saw increase when our country suddenly
faced quarantine living and travel restrictions due to the coronavirus (COVID-19)
pandemic.
Many turned their eyes to the water, putting their vacation money toward purchasing
watercraft. According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, boat sales increased
by 9 percent compared to pre-pandemic levels. What's more, the global canoeing
and kayaking equipment market is expected to grow by $124.44 million between 2020 and
2024 (tinyurl.com/sz8wncs9).
In the bicycling world, the trends are even more staggering. In the initial months of the
COVID-19 pandemic, for example, bicycle sales went up slightly more than 120 percent,
according to The Washington Post (tinyurl.com/pz8tyvvp).
