The Impact of Parks on Property Values: A Review of the Empirical Evidence.
Crompton, John L.
Journal of Leisure Research, v33 n1 p1-31 2001
Reviews research on whether parks and open spaces influence increasing property values (the proximate principle); the magnitude of this effect; and how distance affects the proximate principle. Data from 30 studies on the extent and legitimacy of the proximate principle find that only 5 studies do not support the proximate principle. These atypical results may be attributable to methodological deficiencies. (SM)
