Based on the analysis of the conception and connotation of urban green space system, this paper reviewed the structure and function of urban green space system. Two kinds of structures of urban green space system were summed up, which included the “point-line-surface” layout structure and the “patch-corridor-matrix”  landscape model. The relationship between structure and function and its application in practice were summarized, and some preferential aspects of urban green space system in the future research were proposed. We hope that it be helpful for urban green space system planning of the contemporary China.

Key words: function, landscape, layout, structure, urban green space system
