SOPARC is a validated direct observation tool for assessing park and recreation areas, including park users’ physical activity levels, gender, activity modes/types, and estimated age and ethnicity groupings. It also collects information on park activity area characteristics (e.g., accessibility, usability, supervision, and organization).
A few SOPARC observer training videos are also available on YouTube.
The SOPARC online application has been discontinued, but the full-text user guide is still available here.
The SOPARC app is also available for Apple i-Pads. Download for free on the Apple iTunes App Store.
