Les forêts périurbaines : des espaces récréatifs à la fonction prophylactique : le cas des aires urbaines d'Alençon, de Blois et du Mans

Abstract : In France and in Europe, periurban forests are subject to high social demands for recreationalpurposes. These demands take the form of frequent visits for sports or rest. Local governmentshave succeeded in creating new wooded parks close to cities that are highly appreciated by thepopulation. A survey was run on visitors to forests around three mid-sized cities, addressingwhat they do in the forests and why. The answers revealed differences between suburban parksand larger national forests located farther from the cities. New approaches targeting health mayalso be observed on the part of both individuals and the health sector. These new approachesindicate the existence of a wellness function in periurban forests.
