Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine the history of the park and greenerysystem in present-day Melbourne to clarify the historical background and factors contributing to the formation of a park and greenery system. As a result of this study, it was found that public land secured when the city was founded served as the seedlings of future parks. With establishment of a park management system about 40 years after founding of the city, existing parks today have been maintained in a sound condition. While Melbourne's park and greenery plan temporarily experienced a period of stagnation, it later became legally adopted as a result of a call for wide-area greenery planning that developed along with the idea of controlling disorderly expansion of the city. Furthermore, in response to global environmental problems in recent years, there is now an active movement to improve the existing parks and greenery zones by linking them in a network, thereby showing an important direction in the creation of a sustainable and sound urban environment.
