Access to greenery

The study determines the provision of green recreational sites for public use to the residents of Sofia. It was designed to inform Green Sofia - a project of Sofia Municipality.

The analysis depicts pedestrian access within a 300m range, from the entrances of green recreational sites (parks and city gardens) to residential buildings on the territory of Sofia. As a basis of the analysis, an alleyway network with an estimated pedestrian flow capacity and average pedestrian movement speed was used.

The results of the study could be used in planning new sites in the city's green system, identifying priority areas with a marked lack of access to outdoor recreational facilities.
