ABSTRACT

Urban neighborhood parks create hospitable urban environment by providing resting places with fresh air, where residents can lead comfortable recreational outdoor activities. Therefore, urban neighborhood park services need to be properly supplied to maintain a good quality of life in a city. To sustain a proper level of service provision, the size and the spatial distribution of neighborhood parks need to correspond to those of population in demand. That is, densely populated regions should be provided with large sized neighborhood parks in close proximity, and vice versa. To achieve this planning objective, systematic methodology capable of quantifying the distributional characteristics of population and neighborhood parks in various sizes is required. This study propose a methodological framework where park service deficit subregions relative to population size can be effectively identified. Formulating a service provision assessment index is a methodological core of this framework, which is defined as the difference between actually supplied and planned levels of urban neighborhood park services. The bigger the index value is, the more city residents may undergo service underprovision, since the ‘should-be’ level severely deviates from the actual one in this instance. For the empirical demonstration of the proposed methodology, the assessment index was applied to neighborhood parks in the City of Daegu, Korea.
