- Abstract in English : This paper is dealing with a research on greenway trails in Texas. The research was based on the human ecosystem concept and was intended to determine if and how such greenway facilities were contributing to quality of life and how people might perceive such contributions based on the way they used the trail. Results indicated that most people used greenway trails for recreation but that trails differed in user types and activities based on location and policy. Furthermore that greenway trails are contributing most to quality of life through what the model resented as livability.
