PRB Seeking Buyer's Guide Articles

Parks & Rec Business magazine's Buyer's Guide issue is right around the corner and we'd like you to be a part of it!

If you have an idea and have been thinking about submitting an article, now is the time to be assured space in our annual October Buyer's Guide, by far our most popular issue!

The deadline for submissions is July 14.

What are we looking for?

This year we will focus on:


Do patrons claim you have a haunted park or do you just create one every year? Whether it's just folklore of ghosts from the past, or you have a fantastic Halloween event--we want to hear about it!

Special Events

Tell us how your farmer's market, festival, and family-oriented events are faring and what makes them special.

Action Sports

Get your challenge courses, zip lines, and ropes courses in the spotlight!

Irrigation & Drainage

Do you have an ingenious plan to address stormwater runoff? Why not share it with your neighbors?

We are also still on the lookout for fall maintenance tips for our September issue. Do you have a tried-and-true duct-tape solution for a maintenance problem? Please be sure to share it with us by June 15!

Don't see your idea on the list? Let's talk about it!

Just a few reminders: Articles should be around 1,200 words. Photos are welcome--high-resolution are preferred, but we are willing to consider others. If we do not have a bio on file for you, please submit one (one or two sentences) along with an e-mail address.
