Education and Its Role in Urban Park Management

A paper on education and its role in urban park management in Adelaide. With 80-85% of Australia’s population now living an urban life, with its growing pollution, noise, traffic congestion and other forms of strain, its impersonality and divorcement from daily contact with the soil, no wonder a yearning exists in hundreds of thousands of people to ‘seek nature’ through some form of outdoor recreation; with a growing demand for more public open space in Adelaide, increased pressure from developers for building, and a pending energy crisis, period now to the year 2000 will be a critical one for Adelaide and indeed Australia.
