Abstract

Parks usually create a protective playground space for children to perform physical activity like jumping, running, and climbing. Specific spaces have rarely been created for older adults to perform physical activity in public parks. Now that park designs increasingly include outdoor exercise spaces for older adults, yet the important elements or considerations when designing this space remain unclear. Here, we present the emerging importance of and evidence for creating well-designed activity spaces for senior citizens in public parks in the era of population aging.
