Short Outline
“Prototype Features” of Greenway;
Expansion of “Prototype Features” of Greenway;
Pearl River Delta Greenway Practice from the Perspective of “Prototype Features”
Starting from the earliest prototype “parkway” of greenway, the features which have never changed since the development of greenway are put forward, and they are defined as “prototype features” in this paper. Four “prototype features” of greenway are summarized, and their modern extension is analyzed. From this viewpoint, the construction of Pearl River Delta greenway is empirically studied. Their path planning and working methods are interpreted. The potential problems existed in the construction of these greenways are analyzed and evaluated.

The practice of greenways planning in China is quite characteristic in comparison with that in North American and in Europe. In China, greenway planning has first been practiced in the Pearl River Delta, which is one of most famous centre of manufacturing in China. Six regional ecological greenways, total length of 1690km, will be built there in only 3 years (2010-2012). 9 cities, including Guangzhou and Shenzhen, have been involved in the construction practice, and in the later years, greenways construction will be extended to the entire Guangdong Province. Till to now, two government documents have been published: Master Planning Outline for Greenway Network in Pearl River Delta ; Guidelines for Planning and Design of Regional Greenways in Pearl River Delta, which will strongly support the construction of greenways.
