Global aging is one of the challenges for the concept of sustainable development.
The particular importance have here the needs of designing the
physical environment, especially urban green areas. They have the potential
positive impact on the activity and activation of seniors. The tool, which
is gaining on popularity is sustainable design, which helps to better meet
user needs while taking care of the social and natural environment. The
combination of these issues allows to try to specify the main features that
should have urban green areas to be called age-friendly.
