The Urban Parks Programme, financed by the Heritage Lottery Fund, has sparked a new enthusiasm for the regeneration of Britain's parks. This unique reference book gives a valuable overview of all the elements of public park design. It emphasizes our parks' diversity and richness, and offers practical guidance as to their renovation and future care. It is essential reading for all those involved in the design, upkeep and regeneration of public parks.

"This book is both a thorough and definitive account of the history and development of urban parks in 19th and 20th century Britain and a detailed best-practice guide on how to restore a public park...it is a really good read for anyone with an interest in public parks. Each chapter includes an extensive bibliography, with a further comprehensive list at the end of the book...I feel this book will be welcomed in the library of every landscape designer, every park manager and every garden historian. I would recommend it to anyone working in the landscape, urban design and parks professions and it is essential reading for anyone with an interest or active involvement in the care and refurbishment of public parks.."-Liz Bray, Newcastle upon Tyne, "Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, 44(4), 577-581, 2001, 2001 "Mentioned in a publication of "Historic Gardens Review."Autumn 2001/Winter 2002 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
