This collection comprises a report developed from the analysis of data output from the POSTool and written by Paula Hooper, Bryan Boruff and Fiona Bull of the Centre for the Built Environment and Health, University of Western Australia. The report examined the spatial distribution of Public Open Space (POS) across the Perth Metropolitan Region (PMR) focusing specifically on parks, park type, park amenity, and park catchment by Local Government Area (LGA). Summary statistics were derived for each LGA in the PMR using the POS Tool and park and park amenity provision compared across the region.
The report outlines the spatial disparities in the provision of parks and park amenity in Perth highlighting where certain LGA’s have underprovided for the citizens they represent. Furthermore, through the examination of park catchments and the population serviced by each park, the report identifies the percent of each LGA’s population which does not have easy access to parks in their neighborhood. The results of this report identify the varying range of park and park amenity provision across the PMR whilst providing an example of the robust analysis which can be conducted using results generated by the POS Tool.
The report produced from this analysis will be publically available from the Centre for the Built Environment and Health (CBEH) and can be downloaded via their webpage (http://www.sph.uwa.edu.au/research/cbeh).
