How parks are designed
Parks and public spaces are for everyone. They are the places where people from all ages and walks of life can enjoy the outdoors. The key to building successful spaces is obtained when arranging elements in a way that greatly increases the chances of activity occurring around them. When such elements are arranged closely together, the placement becomes a destination and a place that attracts desirable activity.
It is important that spaces be designed in a way that encourages healthy activities and discourage unhealthy ones. This can be accomplished by means of ensuring sight lines into the space remain open and by placing activities close to places where it can be seen by the public.
Climate change and global warming have had significant impacts on space design. It has become increasingly important to provide shade for young children and the elderly, through the inclusion of shade shelters and shade trees in order to provide relief from the heat and UV rays.
