Abstract

This network project’s aim is to identify the barriers to the use of Melbourne’s urban parks (including council
and Parks Victoria parks) experienced by second generation Australians who do not generally speak English at
home. To achieve the aim, three objectives were to be achieved. The first objective was to gain a context of
barriers and incentives to urban park usage through investigation attitudes towards leisure and perceptions of
parks. The second objective was to identify barriers stopping or limiting urban park usage, and third, to identify
incentives to increase usage of urban parks by second generation Australians that generally use a language other
than English at home.
