Urban residents are generally faced with increasingly prominent health problems. The root of the problem is that urbanization not only changes the local ecosystem, but also changes the living environment and way of life in which people and nature are increasingly separated. Green open space is an effective means to solve urban public health problems.

The residents not only value the good ecological health physical environment of the urban gardens, but also value the five senses aesthetic experience of nourishing the mind and the spirit brought by the beauty of the landscape. The findings of the survey fully prove that the construction of urban gardens to promote the health of the whole residents is not only necessary but also feasible. Based on the empirical research results, the paper comprehensively demonstrates the dialectical relationship between the construction of urban gardens and the promotion of residents’ health. Finally, from the perspectives of the selection of urban garden plants, the enhancement of aesthetic value, the improvement of the ecological environment, the implantation of the concept of health care, and the professional design and operation, etc. the paper puts forward feasible suggestions for building urban gardens to promote national health.
