They need specific places to be designed according to their specific needs, and this design should be related to humanized aspects which were dedicated designed to meet the needs of children and combine with children's physical and psychological characteristics.

(2)Based on our assessment of the case studies and on the review of relevant literature, we want to find the design features of outdoor places that can fulfill different needs of children. (3)To make a design proposal taking into consideration the different aspects we researched about—space, materials, size, plants. (4) Based on our conclusions from the analysis of the Swedish cases, to make a proposal for a city park in China. The major question that we have explored is: How to design a more suitable, engaging and humane outdoor activity space for children in the city‘s public areas? –study case analysis and proposal for children recreational areas within city parks.
