The Trades Publishing Company launched Park & Recreation Trades Magazine in 1995 based on a formula successfully applied to our other business-to-business publications: Our goal for all our magazines has been to offer smaller businesses an opportunity to advertise at a reasonable cost, allowing them to compete with larger companies and reach the same audience. The changes in the park industry over the last few years has made this approach untenable for us to continue to produce a printed monthly magazine with articles of interest to our readers. Plus, many of our readers have encouraged us to reduce our carbon footprint.


Therefore we have expanded our online resource guide for park superintendents and administrators here at www.ParkTrades.com, the most well-traveled website in the industry. With over 10 years of content already accumulated, we know that this site will continue to be the one park professionals use on a daily basis for their needs.

Our online advertising is still the lowest cost advertising available in the industry for manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors of park & rec products.
