This article shares the results of a study that aimed to understand how different groups of older park users engage with the space through structured interviews. While gender and age did not influence the variables considered, ethnicity did influence the use of park facilities, the social milieu they visit the park with, and perceived psychosocial benefits of park use. Interviews were conducted with African American, Hispanic American, Asian American, and Caucasian American older adults.
