Ever increasing urban population, city congestions and busy life schedules, especially in developing countries, are gradually pushing city residents towards urban parks, gardens and lake shores during their leisure hours and morning/evening strolls. Studies involving quantification and valuation of the recreational benefits provided by urban green amenities are lacking in most of the developing countries. This article presents a brief account of two research studies conducted in the planned city of Chandigarh, India during 2002-04 and 2012-13 respectively for assessing recreational benefits of city’s green assets and a clean water body in the form of a lake. The results of the study can be used by urban policy makers, planners, bureaucrats, civil society and others in planning and establishing parks/gardens/water bodies/tree patches or combination of these resources in newer cities which would be coming up in near future.
