Features the newest outdoor recreational design projects from designers around the world, illustrating new and exciting ideas for sports park landscape design. Open spaces, sport and outdoor recreation are important components of people's lives. They provide many cultural, social, economic and environmental benefits and contribute positively to physical and mental health. Everyone, particularly children, the elderly and those with disabilities, should have easy access to open space and the opportunity to participate in sport and outdoor recreational pursuits. The primary purpose of sports parks is to provide for organised sports and physical activity. These spaces need to function with a high degree of organisation and should cater for sports uses ranging from junior team training to major competitive events, at both the local and city-wide levels.
