dc.description.abstractEveryday, hundreds of recreationalists from various ethnic backgrounds visit Cameron Park. They participate in a variety of activities ranging from hiking to picnicking. In 2006, the Cameron Park Recreational Use Survey was administered to Cameron Park visitors via opportunistic sampling to chronicle recreational activities and user concerns in Cameron Park. Pearson's Chi Square Test of Independence determined if significant differences in preference for outdoor recreational activities exist between user groups. First, the results of this study suggest there are statistically significant differences in preference for outdoor recreational activities among African Americans, Hispanic, and Caucasians. Differences are significant in preference for 7 of 24 activities, including hiking, biking, and family gatherings. Second, there are statistically significant differences in preference for outdoor recreational activity among Cameron Park visitors with different incomes, gender, age, education, and residence. Other factors influenced by ethnicity include recreational site choice and perception of safety.en
