Abstract [sv]

Parker i det urbana landskapet är platser som är stora tillgångar för staden. Tillgänglighet till parker i staden resulterar i en rad olika fördelaktiga effekter som exempelvis förbättrad fysisk hälsa och minskade stressnivåer. I Sverige utnyttjas parker i högre grad under sommarhalvåret eftersom det svenska klimatet är kallt under andra perioder av året. Denna studie tar därför reda på hur människor ska kunna öka deras användning av parker under längre perioder av året. Studiens inriktning är en utvärdering över hur aktiviteter som utförs i parker kan förlängas under våren. Detta gjordes genom att ta reda på hur användare som utförde olika aktiviteter uppfattade olika väderförhållanden. Studien tar även reda på hur olika attribut i parken kan påverka parkens aktiviteter. En jämförelse gjordes även mellan de aktiviteter som var bundna till en plats och de aktiviteter som inte var bundna till en plats. Målet var att hitta en utformning som skulle passa för respektive aktivitet under månaderna mars, april och maj. En enkätundersökning utfördes med hänsyn till användarnas åsikter om deras nuvarande användning, påverkan av väderförhållanden och önskade förändringar. Observationer har genomförts över människornas aktiviteter och på vilken plats i parken användarna utför dem. Metoderna resulterade i en åtskillnad i uppfattning av väderförhållanden mellan de olika aktiviteterna. Studien fastställer att under månaderna mars, april och maj påverkas aktiviteterna olika av väderförhållanden i parken. Användarna önskar olika attribut i parken för att kunna utföra aktiviteten i högre grad under denna tid på året. Aktiviteter som är platsbundna visade sig högre skillnad mellan de olika åsikterna än de aktiviteter som inte var platsbundna. Framtida planering bör innefatta attribut vid platsbundna aktiviteter vilka möter användarens behov.

Abstract [en]

In the urban landscape, parks are places with beneficial assets for the city. When people have access to parks in the city several effects get an impact on them, such as improved physical health and reduced stress levels. In Sweden, parks have the largest use during the summer months because of the cold climate during the other periods of the year. This study provides information on how people can increase their use of parks for a longer period of the year. The focus of the study is to evaluate how activities carried out in parks can extend in the spring. The object was to find out how users who performed different activities perceived different weather conditions. The study also finds out how different attributes in the park would make it better for the activities. To divide the activities a comparison between the activities that were tied to a site and the activities that were not tied to a place was made. The goal was to find a design that would suit the respective activity during the months of March, April and May. A survey taking into account user opinions regarding their current use, weather conditions and desired changes for the park was included. Another method was observations over people’s activities and at what location in the park users perform them. The methods resulted in a distinction in terms of weather conditions between the different activities. The study states that during the months of March, April and May, activities are affected by weather conditions in the park. Users want different attributes in the park to be able to perform the activity more this time of year. Activities that are tied to a place showed a greater difference between the different views than those that were not tied. Future planning should include attributes of site-based activities that meet user needs.
