Urban parks in crisis

, : Urban parks in crisis. Landscape Design (149): 12-14

The nature of the crisis facing urban parks and how the landscape profession can participate in overcoming it is examined.

British urban parks are obsolete in terms of design, often badly managed, expensive to maintain, and under-used.
