    In ‘Regional plan’ of 2005, The Greater Copenhagen Authority (HUR) places special emphasis on the recreational values that relate to regional green structure. All residents should have easy access to larger green areas and waterfronts. The green structure should be diverse, so that demands for different recreational activities, organised and unorganised, can be met. Actions to be taken to improve the recreational infrastructure include nature restoration, aforestation and development of the path network. Moreover, the issue of accessibility in general is placed centrally. This is the latest plan in a process initiated in 1908 in which the city was developed from a typical European city with a compact and relatively medieval and renaissance centre to a modern star city characterised by a radial network of fingers that comprises housing and infrastructure. In this paper, the development of the urban green structure in greater Copenhagen is elaborated upon, focusing on several key items.
