During 1976 and 1977 the Victorian Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation and the Geelong Regional Planning Authority undertook a major study of recreational activity in the Geelong area. As part of that study, John Paterson Urban Systems was commissioned to undertake an extensive household survey and to develop a set of recreation site usage models for locations in the Geelong region. These data, together with information on environmental usage limits for each site in the region were used in the development of recreational area management programmes.
