Measuring Use Patters among Malaysian Neighbourhood Parks Users
This study validates the use pattern scales of park usersâ€™ for Neighbourhood Parks context in Malaysian residential area. Samples of 414 daily park users in two neighbourhood parks in the Klang Valley area were achieved. The measures on use pattern were developed using three use pattern scales which are activities, passive activity and active activity. Confirmatory factor analyses (CFA) were used to validate the instrument. Results showed good-fit indices on each construct confirming the theory behind each and every items used in the study. Despite several reduction on the items, the CFA on use pattern yield a good internal consistencies making it suitable for itâ€™s use in the research design as well as future research focusing in measuring the use pattern aspect of neighbourhood green.
