MetadataShow full item record
Urban green parks play vital role in providing fresh and healthy environment in urban areas. But conspicuous problem remains in unequal distribution of parks. This problem raises various questions. One of them is distributive justice. This study was conducted for four major cities of Punjab: Ludhiana, Bathinda, Amritsar and Chandigarh, to check the location of parks and slums in these cities to look into the problem of distributive justice. In study, the buffer analysis is used to know the serving area of parks and to represent over-served, served and un-served area of parks. GIS (Geographical Information System) is used to derive the serving area of parks. The result shows that major concentration of parks is in exclusive areas in these cities like elite class residential localities. It also highlights that most of the parks are far away from the slum areas. The study also shows that well planned areas have the high facility of parks than others. Overall, these findings help in underscoring the problem of distributive justice in allocating parks in urban areas.
