This master thesis deals with playing areas for children and young people in the community Grafenbach - St. Valentin in Lower Austria. In principle, I assume, that a complete organization of open spaces influences the qualitiy of life of children and their families positively. This work based on theoretical basics like different requirements of user groups under the aspect of gender mainstreaming and also subsistence. The methodical approach included mapping and the description of strucural and also sozial organisation of open spaces. To find out where and at what time children and young people use open spaces, I did observation tours through the village.The next researching step was the organisation of a participation of 10 to 14 year old children of the community. The children had to draw their most visited open spaces in maps and also places with positiv and negative associations. Basis is the literary work of Martha Muchow „Der Lebensraum des Großstadtkindes“. The results of this thesis are points of the open space planning, prepared for the cadastrals Grafenbach and St. Valentin – Landschach. This points concern design and also traffic regulations measures, and measures to improve the daily supply and social life in the village. This planning proposals could flow into future projects and could improve and conserve open spaces for children and young people.
