Availability of Public, Near-residential Green Spaces (Edition 2017)

Explanations and Imprint of the Map
  1. In addition to the degree of provision, the share of private green space in residential areas must be taken into account in an ascertainment of provision of those areas. Areas of different construction types with comparable open-space structures are grouped into three types with different shares of private and semi-public open spaces.
  2. All public green spaces which fulfill the following minimum standards are considered "usable major environmental pollution (noise, exhaust fumes). A total of 778 available public green without restrictions": Areasize > 0.5 ha, suitable area shape, unrestricted accessiblity, no spaces meet these minimum requirements and have been incorporated into the map.
  3. Fringes of the forests have been functionally incorporated into the calculation as near-residential open space.
  4. A radius of 500 m is taken as the basis for residential recreation. Residential areas whose access to a green facility is hampered by barriers (e.g., heavily traveled roadways), are considered unprovided, even if they are within the 500 m-radius.
  5. Provision is shown in reference to blocks or block segments. Only blocks with a significant residential share have been evaluated.
  6. The names of the degrees of the provision have been adapted to those in the Landscape Programme, component plan "Recreation and Use of Open Space".
