Urban parks are natural refuges and public recreational resources in municipalities. The profession of landscape architecture was established during the nineteenth-century urban park movement and has been taking developments of the urban park system as its main mission ever since. Experts from various professional areas joined in this field and expanded the professional concerns. Potential differences of their research interest may promote landscape architects to further understand the roles of urban parks in the changing world. This study applied co-word analyses to identify major issues addressed by documents on urban parks that were published in Landscape Journal during 1983-2013 or indexed by Web of Science Core Collection during 1994-2013. The results showed that experts from other professions provided more extensive and in-depth exploration in urban park research besides ‘professional practices’. Such useful facts and knowledge can improve practices in landscape architecture and impel landscape architects to shoulder more social responsibilities.
