Abstract

Recreation provides different benefits. To take the expected recreational benefits people should visit recreation places. From this, the visitors expect more escape because it causes mind therapy. Most people are loyal to the green spaces in the parks for their recreation. When walking around the green walkways in the gardens, the various green features offer benefits to people. Repurchasing intention can happen by fulfilling the visitor's expected escape benefits by green walking routes in botanical gardens. It is also important because people can expect recreational benefits. According to the National Botanic Gardens 2017 report, the number of visitors to the gardens increased to 2,837,554. Although there is a statistical analysis report on these cases, the management in the field of outdoor recreation has no empirical tools to measure the visiting benefits like “escape impact on repurchasing intention” especially in Sri Lankan context. Therefore, this research study explores: “How to measure escape as a benefit of recreation consumption impact on repurchasing intention empirically”. The qualitative method was used to analyse the data. The analysis of this research revealed the relationship between escape benefits and repurchasing intention. Accordingly, escape will have an impact on Repurchasing intention. Various factors influence this. But there are no instrumental tools related to escape benefits to show how it impacts visitors. Accordingly, this research study suggests further how to estimate a path diagram with mediator impact and what the outdoor recreation consumption indexis.
