Greenway Planning: Recreational Corridors Within Ljubljana Urban Region, Mojca Golobič, Nadja Penko Seidl Jan 2016

Greenway Planning: Recreational Corridors Within Ljubljana Urban Region, Mojca Golobič, Nadja Penko Seidl

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Regular physical activity is an important element of healthy lifestyle, which has proven positive impacts on human health (Bedimo-Rung et al., 2005, Telama et al., 2005). Due to the increasing number of sedentary jobs and increased reliance on motorized transport, leisure time physical activity is becoming more and more important in fulfilling recommended physical activity levels (Bedimo-Rung et al., 2005: 159).

Accessible green open spaces encourage physical activity. Several studies have shown that people of all age and social groups, who have access to green open space, are physically more active and consequently, healthier (Abraham et al., 2010, Ward Thompson ...


Experimenting Regional River Pattern As Landscape Corridors In Urban Transformation, Adnan Kaplan Jan 2016

Experimenting Regional River Pattern As Landscape Corridors In Urban Transformation, Adnan Kaplan

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

It is widely acknowledged that today’s state-of-art cities are capable of acting as landscape systems within and beyond urban domain. In this context, river systems provide urban fabric with physical, ecological and social advocacy while addressing multiple challenges of rapid urbanization and its resultant effects such as dense and uncontrolled urban development.

Based on the aforementioned statement, this paper enunciates the attachment of regional river pattern (particularly composed of Meles Delta and Bornova Rivers, and their association with natural and urban patches) with centrally located, yet large tract of İzmir metropolitan city (Fig. 1).


Implementing The Vision: The Atlanta Beltline Corridor, Georgia, Usa, Valdis D. Zusmanis, Leonardo Alvarez, Micah Lipscomb, Ryan Gravel Jan 2016

Implementing The Vision: The Atlanta Beltline Corridor, Georgia, Usa, Valdis D. Zusmanis, Leonardo Alvarez, Micah Lipscomb, Ryan Gravel

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The Atlanta BeltLine is a 22-mile transformative corridor project that will connect 45 neighborhoods through transit, open space and trails. As a repurposed series of abandoned railroad segments that run across the valleys and ridges of the Piedmont plateau region, the physical design of the corridor actively responds to both the physiographic and cultural diversity of its context. It is a comprehensive example of landscape infrastructure that will serve to organize, engage and guide future development in one of America’s fastest growing metropolitan areas (Figure 1).


A Systematic Review Of Landscape Corridor Conservation And Management In Europe, Haiyun Xu, Tobias Plieninger, Jørgen Primdahl Jan 2016

A Systematic Review Of Landscape Corridor Conservation And Management In Europe, Haiyun Xu, Tobias Plieninger, Jørgen Primdahl

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Since EU Commission initiated Green Infrastructure (GI) strategy, an important step has been taken to help public to understand benefits of nature, such as providing food, clean air, and water resource. Besides, Green Infrastructure plays an important role in climate regulation, stormwater prevention, sustaining biodiversity. And its recreational function is also valuable for human society. Therefore, it is necessary to invest more resources in Green Infrastructure to develop, maintain and sustain it (Green Infrastructure COM, 2013).

Green Infrastructure is planned as a strategically network of natural and seminatural areas with environmental functions and its elements are designed and managed to ...


The Degree Of Visibility As A Tool To Assess And Design Of A Visual Corridor, Urszula Forczek-Brataniec Jan 2016

The Degree Of Visibility As A Tool To Assess And Design Of A Visual Corridor, Urszula Forczek-Brataniec

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Visual analysis has permanently entered the procedures related to design and management of spatial resources. It is strengthened in the form of instructions and textbooks and hence has become a vital source of information for more conscious design of spatial effects. The basis of the visual analyses is the range of the view - called viewshed. It used to be marked out with a ruler and a topographic map (Felleman, 1986) while currently this process is conducted with digital tools (Bishop, 2007). In this way we gain information regarding the range of the view from a particular site and hence the ...


The Importance Of Urban Corridors In Improving The Green Infrastructure In Cities: Case Study Gaziantep-Turkey, Nasim Shakouri, Mehmet Emin Baris Jan 2013

The Importance Of Urban Corridors In Improving The Green Infrastructure In Cities: Case Study Gaziantep-Turkey, Nasim Shakouri, Mehmet Emin Baris

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Rapid urbanization in parallel with population growth is the phenomenon of our century. Urbanization implies great pressure on natural resources and the environment (Rees, 1997; Sandstrom, 2002). Urban growth, by altering cities and the surrounding countryside, presents numerous challenges in urban environment (Tzoulas et al., 2007). As a result of these rapid alterations in urban land use; loss of natural areas, fragmentation of open spaces and degradation of water resources have been occurred over the years. Furthermore, these changes have been influenced the function of ecological services such as provisioning services (e.g. food, fuel, water) to regulating (e.g ...


Opportunities For Greenways Through Development Of Ecological And Green Corridor Landscape Planning In Hungary, Attila Csemez, Judit Bárcziné Kapovits Jan 2013

Opportunities For Greenways Through Development Of Ecological And Green Corridor Landscape Planning In Hungary, Attila Csemez, Judit Bárcziné Kapovits

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

In the specialist literature on landscape design, greenways are multi-functional routes which optimally have both recreational and ecological functions. The recreational function of greenways is primarily use by pedestrians, cyclists and horse-riders. The ecological role of greenways means that optimally they are part of a given landscape’s ecological system. In the course of our research – taking into account the natural, social and economic conditions, as well as landscape and design precedents – we are seeking answers to questions within the following categories: (1) justifications for the creation of greenways in Hungary; (2) the geographical areas in which greenways may be ...


Working With Communities: U.S National Park Service Community Assistance In Corridor Planning, Charles L. Tracy Jan 2010

Working With Communities: U.S National Park Service Community Assistance In Corridor Planning, Charles L. Tracy

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Shifting Leadership to the Local and Regional Level: Changes in federal land protection priorities and U.S. demographics have prompted a growing realization within the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) and other federal land managing agencies that they need to be more creative in partnering with local communities, including those with underserved populations, to engage them more fully in the protection and stewardship of cultural landscapes, river corridors, and recreational trails and greenways. This increased recognition of the need for partnership, especially in the protection of linear corridors, is underscored by the introduction of “Treasured Landscapes” (DOI, 2010) a ...


Western Sydney Parklands: Creating Coherency From Diversity In A Greenway Corridor, Linda Corkery, Catherine Evans Jan 2010

Western Sydney Parklands: Creating Coherency From Diversity In A Greenway Corridor, Linda Corkery, Catherine Evans

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The Western Sydney Parklands (WSP) is a significant greenway corridor of some 5280 ha, extending 27 km from north to south, located 35 km west of the Sydney CBD. It is a corridor replete with opportunities, but also presenting many challenges to its future development and ongoing management, in particular, balancing the public’s interest to gain access to the corridor for recreation with broader conservation concerns to enhance its ecological integrity. This paper charts the evolution of the WSP throughout its history, and explores how the WSP in combination with the M7 motorway has evolved since 1968, focusing on ...
