Abstract:
The population shift to the arid and semiarid southwest of the United States of North America has increased the need for recreation open areas within the cities. This problem has been found in developing cities like Tucson, Arizona. This thesis deals with one component of the overall parkland problem, the use of washes and drainageways as open recreation areas. Using Tucson, Arizona as a study area, three linear parks along the washes within the urban area are used as case studies. Each park is analyzed in its location, access, facilities, and vegetation. This analysis gives a picture of each park and its advantages and disadvantages. From the case studies the analysis is compiled into planning/design concepts and recommendations. These products will be helpful to landscape architects and planners in the development of new linear parks along the washes and drainageways of the arid and semiarid cities.
