There are mainly two ways to transform the design of an existing park. You could either make a replanning of the park, an act that changes the design and the plant material in one swoop. Or you could use the management to change the expression of the park. To be able to develop the parks with the help of management, some form of goal is needed, that can make the management of the park strive towards an expression for the whole park as well as its individual parts. Among the documented goals, for individual parks and park management, which exist in the municipalities today, there seems to be a weak link between the all-embracing goals and the management that is carried out in the parks. Some type of goal that can, in a direct way, influence the expression of the park is lacking. This degree project has tried to take this weak link between the different goals and turn it into a "new" type of management goal, called a designing management goal. In these management goals, lies an ambition to make them reasonable to carry out as well as they are designing. They are supposed to be reasonable considering the level of knowledge and the economic situation that exist in the municipality that is being studied. The search for what kind of knowledge that is needed to be able to formulate this kind of management goal, has been a great part of the aim for this master's thesis. A case study has been used to get a hold of the information needed. This case study consisted of two parks in Landskrona. The studies of the parks considered the already existing documented goals, how management carried out in a municipality could affect the parks, what the parks looked like and how they were maintained and how they were used. All this was done to see how these different parts could influence the making of designing management goals, in general and specifically for the studied parks. The designing management goals are then formulated for the studied parks as an example. The usage of these designing management goals differ quite a lot from the usage of normal management plans, because they consider multiple factors that can influence the use of the park and its design as well as the fact that the formulation is completely different. They also have a clearer connection to the individual park, when compared to a management plan. The formulating of these designing management goals is something that could be a part of the knowledge of a landscape architect. However there seem to be a great gain for these management goals when there is cooperation between different professions in the process of formulating them. A suitable group could for example be the cooperation between a landscape architect, a landscape engineer and a foreman that works in the park, for which the management goals are being formulated. But to be able to transform the park only with the help of designing management goals, there have to be some sort of effort to make the management of parks more visible. One thing that could be done is to invent some sort of ceremony that would make this type of transformation as visible as a replanning would be.
