Abstract: Under the guidelines of the concept plan, Singapore has embarked on a path to build an island wide park connector network to provide more greenery to the island. Most of these park connectors are situated within public housing estates. Thus, this dissertation embarked to find out how park connectors affect the quality of life of its users. Often, these are also residents living near these park connectors. It was found that park connectors indeed had a positive impact on the quality of life of the users. However, users did have their misgivings towards the park connectors. There were complaints towards the lack of aesthetics and identity of these park connectors towards the estate. Despite these complaints, users were generally of the agreement that it was an important site for exercising and commuting purposes. Furthermore, users commented on the importance of park connectors. They believed that their quality of life would be negatively affected if the park connectors do not exist. This was especially true for the older users above the ages of 50. There are also suggestions for further improvement of the park connectors as urban landscapes. Overall, there is a receptive acceptance and optimism towards the future of park connectors and the park connector network in Singapore.
