Paper Title:
Density Changes and their Impact on Sustainable Recreational Travel to Parks in Large Chinese Cities: Shanghai Case
  Abstract

Density should impact sustainable transportation but its exact role is still under discussion due to various interpretations and inconsistencies in the literature. To explore its impact on urban recreational travel in large Chinese cities under rapid urbanization, this paper took Shanghai as a case, studied its spatial patterns of both population density and road density, surveyed 11 popular urban parks on user access modes and analyzed the mode changes in spatial terms. The passive effect of low-density urban sprawl on sustainable recreational travel in large Chinese cities was addressed.
