Public parks in urban settings come under open spaces for urban residents. Open spaces are comprised of parks, green spaces, gardens, road-side plantings and natural landscapes. They play a critical role in bringing a balance between land development and urban ecology. Open spaces not only affect the urban climate for the better, but also provide residents with a relatively cleaner territory in which they can feel closer to nature, as well as the space to conduct physical exercises and recreational activities for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The significance of the open spaces in urban areas cannot be overlooked. However, as urbanization increases, not only does it means an increase in city population, but also a decrease in open spaces, which get replaced by concrete and built-up structures; infrastructures to accommodate the rising population, demand for housing and services.
