Nature and leisure

To make good use of any area, irrespective of size, the layout of the site must meet the requirements of (proposed) users. Especially specific use, as found on leisure sites and in nature conservation areas, demands a well conceived site design. Both these areas combine a green setting with usability and an outdoor experience. Examples are both campsites and holiday parks, sporting grounds and a tea garden with playground as well as an ecological corridor with hiking path and info panels,  a visitors centre edging a nature reserve or an established forest steeped in history.

User intensity and accessibility are key in designing a well appointed site. Central to well designed leisure sites and natural areas alike are organizing usage, distributing visitor intensity, conducting people between points of interest and control of visitor behavior.
