Abstract

The public realm could appear in many ways to comprise the varied identity of place influenced by a person or object and culture or environment. The purpose of this paper is to show the leisure behaviour of the urban community in relation to the setting of the urban public park during the night time. Meanwhile, the literature reviews regarding night time social behaviour and the leisure activities of community in urban outdoor spaces are limited. An improved understanding of the relationship between community leisure and an urban public park setting could be used to influence the development of future public park design, to create night time urban outdoor environments to be more conducive for community leisure activity. Keywords: night time leisure, public park, urban community, place identity.
