Urban sprawl is the common problem faced by many cities in today's world. Since the 1990s, the features of urban sprawl have emerged and become more and more serious, leading to many negative effects in the fields of economy, society and ecology. The rapid development of urban economy, population growth and spatial diffusion, construction of development zone, motorization and construction of traffic facilities, residence diffusion and suburban real estate development, as well as macro urban planning, have contributed to the urban sprawl of Changchun. To control spatial expansion with circle-spread type and urban sprawl, based on the inter-external experiences of some ideas and strategies to control the urban sprawl, this paper put forward regulation pathways to control urban sprawl of Changchun from five aspects including the mode of urban growth, optimizing urban spatial layout, controlling and guiding of real estate development, construction of rapid transit system and protection of farmland and ecosystems.
