The COVID-19 pandemic has generated significant changes in urban planning when considering green areas and public spaces according to the new demands of distancing for the population.

The proposal is developed in La Ciénega, located in the northeast of the cantonal head, which is a land declared as a protected area by the Guayas provincial government. From the method of observation, surveys and the use of geographic information programs, the research methodology will be developed that includes: statistical analysis of 198 people according to a sample calculated with the INEC projection, diagnosis of the study sector and development of the intervention polygon through ArcGIS based on results.
