Social and ecological guidelines for designing and maintaining small parks

Designing Small Parks: A Manual for Addressing Social and Ecological Concerns draws on a wide range of knowledge to provide a one-stop reference to building better parks.

Integrating design criteria with current social and natural science research, Designing Small Parks presents landscape architects, park designers, park departments, planners, scientists, and civic groups with a broad palette of design options. Beginning with an overview of key issues and terms, this accessible manual is arranged around twelve topics that represent key questions, contradictions, and tensions in the design of small parks.

Designing Small Parks features:

  • Concise guidelines providing immediate access to critical information
  • Fundamental material on size, edges, appearance, and naturalness
  • Ecological and human environment coverage of water, plants, wildlife, and air and climate
  • Succinct summaries of issues surrounding clients and other involved parties
  • Over 100 drawings and photographs illustrating design details
  • Up-to-date scientific research
  • Five conceptual design examples that offer hands-on applications of covered material
