Assessment of Ecosystem Service Urban Recreation – A Case Study of Leipzig, Germany

The World Health Organization (WHO) notes that outdoor recreation prevents diseases and improves urban residents' health. Recent rapid population growth in industrial cities, coupled with high demand for housing and amenities, negatively impacts green spaces and indirectly impedes outdoor recreation. Green spaces are the key factor in improving the quality of life in urban settlements, and in the spirit of social justice, everyone should have the right to access them. In this paper, the city of Leipzig serves as a case study to analyze urban green spaces with recreational functions and explore ways to achieve sustainable urban development. This study relies on GIS as an analytical instrument and ATKIS Basic DLM (Digital Landscape Model) as a base dataset.
