Throughout the evolution of time, Men have been looking for alternatives over alternatives to exploit the natural resources, which as a result have led to the depletion of the biodiversity (Surendran and Sekar, 2010). From hunting, deforestation to construction of building within the ecosystem, the emergence of both in the natural surrounding has been root of outdoor recreation. The spectrum of benefits that involvement in outdoor recreation have on the society, environment and economy of a country, have been camouflaging the impacts that it generates on the ecosystem. Studies conducted by O’Connell, Potter, Curthoys, Dyment and Cuthbertson (2005) can be used as a backbone to support the above argument, as they viewed outdoor recreation as the root of several ecological pitfalls, including climate change, loss of species and soil erosion. Despite the fact that outdoor recreation represents a challenge to the environment, when taking into account the benefits that it generates on the society and economy, are far more important, as it contributes to physical activity and improved health (Cohen, McKenzie, Sehgal, Williamson, Golinelli and Lurie, 2007; Godbey and Morrow, 2007). The fact that outdoor recreation relies heavily on natural area, consuming an underestimate amount of natural resources including space like Land ( O’Connell et al., 2005), hence, leading to the rapid depletion of the biodiversity due to human activities (surendran and sekar, 2010). Even though great concerns are being allocated to the environment to ensure its sustainability, It has been criticised by Butler and Waldbrook (2003) that the popularity of adventure, naturalist and outdoor travellers have experienced a boom and involvement of people in adventure has had its repercussion on the delicate ecological balance (Clarke, 1988). While taking outdoor recreation into a critical angle, it can be opined without any penumbra of uncertainty that, many studies namely those carried out by Butler and Waldbrook (2003) and Hallo and Manning (2011), have illustrated the importance of transport as fundamental link to outdoor recreation. Hence, critically arguing, transport is indeed a source of environment stressor that generates pollution, noise and even source of problem to flora and fauna. Even though much research has been conducted in external context to illustrate the importance and costs of outdoor recreation, when emphasis is being laid to the Mauritian context, more specifically, Adventure Park, no evidence has been emerged to support the importance of outdoor recreation and its contribution on the Economic, Social and Environmental aspect.
