Full Description
As the pace of urbanization accelerates and population and building densities increase, particularly across larger cities, there's much less park space available for people to enjoy. With less investment outlay and a smaller area required, 'pocket parks' could provide the solution for the creation of highly sought-after spaces for activities in high-density city environments. They can be beautiful, green areas that increase the ecological benefits of the environment, and would help improve and satisfy the local resident's need to enjoy a space outdoors. This book studies the characteristics of the pocket park and the relationship between the landscape and people, and it is perfect source material for landscape designers and urban planners.
