We develop aggregate measures of the recreational value of types of open space when data on individual site visitation are not available. Our procedure accounts for both the allocation (between the different types of open space) and participation (total number of trips) decisions. The procedure is applied to estimate the recreational value of three types of open spaces (beaches, urban parks and national parks) in Israel.
