Parking and Vehicle Trip Generation for Soccer Fields and Elementary Schools

VIEWS: 74 PAGES: 5

Many communities in the western US continue building sports fields for recreational and competitive youth sports programs. Many times the fields are located at elementary school sites. Little actual data exist regarding parking associated with these uses and their influence on elementary school trip generation. Particularly with the advent of multifield soccer or baseball fields, the complexity and variation in parking demand has not been well documented with survey's and actual observations. Three key factors have emerged that should be considered in the design and planning for sports field projects: 1. Parking demand varies depending on the type of sports event. 2. When sports fields are combined on a school site, the demand for the sports field may generate the larger parking demand. 3. The p.m. peak hour vehicle trip generation for an elementary school site is significantly higher for sites that have active sports fields.
