Benefits of Urban Green Space in the Australian Context

Topics: Participation and Learning | Comments

Urban green space is the all the vegetated areas that occur in cities.

Urban green spaces are widely understood as ‘improving’ cities by increasing amenity and providing places for both passive and active recreation. Areas of green space in cites have also been set aside for conservation purposes.

There has been extensive research into a wide range of effects that urban green spaces have on the urban environments, and the people, plants and animals that live in them.

This report summarises some of that research.

It was produced by the Clean Air and Urban Landscapes Hub (CAUL), which is a consortium of four universities: the University of Melbourne, RMIT University, the University of Western Australia, and the University of Wollongong. The CAUL Hub is funded under the National Environmental Science Programme of the Australian Government’s Department of Environment.
