Planning Public Parks under Resilience Theory: A Framework for Negotiating Ecosystem Services and Organised Community Sport
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis presents a novel theoretical framework for integrating the environmental and recreation functions of public parks into a coherent planning approach. This framework, which combines insights from urban ecological and human health resilience theory, is firstly applied to discuss how parks can best facilitate key ecosystem services. Using a case study in Perth’s outer suburbs, the framework is then used to investigate how opportunities for community sport might be best provided alongside these services.
