Knowledge acquisition to improve decision making is important in leisure redevelopment efforts. The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) has been used in business applications where the researchers seek to incorporate the expertise of decision makers into the decision model. The process bridges the gap between researchers and planners and improves the quality of the decisions. This paper discusses the value of this methodology in knowledge acquisition for tourism planning and presents a successful tourism application. Two groups (local citizens and state parks officials) participated in the search for alternatives and the redevelopment planning. The conclusion evaluates the situation and the methodology.
