Designing Greenways by Paul Cawood Hellmund

Book Description

How are greenways designed? What situations lead to their genesis, and what examples best illustrate their potential for enhancing communities and the environment? Designing greenways is a key to protecting landscapes, allowing wildlife to move freely, and finding appropriate ways to bring people into nature. This book brings together examples from ecology, conservation biology, aquatic ecology, and recreation design to illustrate how greenways function and add value to ecosystems and human communities alike. Encompassing everything from urban trail corridors to river flood-plains to wilderness-like linkages, greenways preserve or improve the integrity of the landscape, not only by stemming the loss of natural features, but also by engendering new natural and social functions. From 19th-century parks and parkways to projects still on the drawing boards, "Designing Greenways" is a fascinating introduction to the possibilities - and pitfalls - involved in these ambitious projects. As towns and cities look to greenways as a new way of reconciling man and nature, designers and planners will look to "Designing Greenways" as an invaluable compendium of best practices.
