Planning, Accessibility and Distribution of New Parks: Case Study of the City of Prague

prof. Ing. arch. Roman Koucký

This article focuses on the procedure for city planning in relation to public parks. Using the example of the City of Prague, the article first describes the methodology for the creation of the new land use plan, namely in terms of the arrangement of parks and important forested areas within the city. The hierarchy of parks, the lack of parks arising from population density, and the accessibility of parks for city residents are examined. The article also describes a newly developed comprehensive method for the assessment of areas of so-called urban jungles that are currently unused and are potentially suitable as new parks. The main objective of both parts is to find, assess, and recommend suitable areas for construction of new parks so that their location corresponds to people’s needs yet complements the composition of the city. The research predominantly showed a local rather than global lack of parks, localized in particular on the right, less rugged, bank of the Vltava in areas of the eastern periphery of the city with a lower population density.
