Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

A growing body of evidence suggests that individuals who engage in a short-term visit to an urban park experience physiological and psychological restorative benefits. This study was designed to identify factors associated with the improvement in subjective well-being immediately after a short-term visit to an urban park in an uncontrolled condition, and to determine the optimal park-visit duration that can provide an improvement in subjective well-being.
