This chapter continues the comparative study of public open space management and follows the analytical framework sketched out at the beginning of Chapter 7. Whereas that chapter looked at the context for public space management, this chapter looks at management processes and practices through the four key dimensions of coordination, regulation, maintenance and investment. It examines how the eleven international case study cities have dealt with those four topics and it concludes with key general lessons that can be taken from their experience. As before, boxes throughout the chapter looking at individual cities and detailing relevant aspects of their open space management practices provide the empirical background for the discussion. The four dimensions are each discussed in turn in the first four sections of the chapter. A final section draws out conclusions from this work.
