Abstract

Sustainable park management encompasses the requirement to provide equal opportunities for
access and usage of the park, regardless of age, gender or nationality of the visitors. It thereby
presents opportunities as well as problems for today’s heterogeneous global cities. The research
presented here is part of the project “Sustainable design, management and appropriation of urban
public parks” (www.geo.unizh.ch/nfp54/)1.
We assume that the specific park infrastructure in the form of design elements, behaviour settings
(in the sense of Schoggen, 1989) and management (Kaplan et al., 1998) affords specific activities
while discouraging others. By applying this knowledge to a specific spatial management, conflicts of
usage can be minimized and thus social sustainability is ensured.
Our goal therefore is to model the social interaction and resulting space usage in urban public
parks at the micro level of individuals, because an understanding of the processes of space
appropriation is important for the design and management of sustainable urban environments.
