dc.description.abstractThe notion that community gardens can be honed as a type of greenspace remains foreign to the policy-makers in Athens. The unquestioned aspect of stability that can be provided by the municipality is secure land tenure, which is protection that parks in Athens enjoy as providers for recreation and nature preservation. This thesis defines greenspace services to explain how different greenspace typologies can be understood as a system. Thirteen municipal park and thirteen community gardens in Athens were carefully evaluated and found to be limited as a greenspace services system. Context characteristics defined categories for each site, and data was gathered using primarily Geographic Information Systems to evaluate the existing services. Three priority areas in Athens that need to be considered for the addition of new parks or community gardens were then determined based on need.
