Abstract

<p>Although the positive contribution of urban green spaces to human health is well known, behavioural preferences for specific types of green spaces within urban landscapes have not been clearly evaluated. Developing empirical relationships between human behaviour (i.e. use) and green spaces may contribute to effective city planning. To address this, we surveyed dog owners by asking them to draw their typical dog walking route on a map. We then calculated the proportion of dog walking routes that passed through built-up, open green, and forest areas relative to a null model of the availability of these land-use types. When the degree of preference for built-up areas was assumed to be 1.0, the preference for open green space was significantly greater at 2.18 (25th percentile = 2.04, 75th percentile = 2.32) and the preference for forest areas was 1.34 (1.14. 1.55). Dog walking is a major activity in urban areas and assessing landscape use by dog owners provides insight into urban green space preferences.</p>
