Design Strategy of Community Greenway Connectivity of High-density Urban Asia – A Case Study on Beijing



Publication Date



In the high-density Asian cities which expand rapidly and witness explosive growth in population, the construction of urban community greenways can effectively mitigate the heavy pressure that human beings impose on natural and humanistic environment. In Beijing, poor connectivity is one of the major challenges community greenway construction faces. This paper performs a field survey on the established community greenways in Beijing and their surrounding communities, finding that greenway connectivity is affected by the problems like interference with motorways and unsound greenway planning system in development process. The survey analysis demonstrates that the poor connectivity of community greenways is embodied between greenway, community and surrounding service facilities. To address the problems above, a detailed study on the strategies that improve connectivity of community greenways is conducted.
