 Summary:
 Modern approaches in improving urban open spaces in residential neighborhoods, often exposed to a wide range of physical, environmental, social and aesthetic problems, in recent years in developed countries imply the implementation of an integrated approach in the process of their revitalization, often proposing the introduction of community gardens as a significant and effective tool for improvement. The aim of this paper is to examine the concept of community gardens, analyze an example of best practice and explore potentials of their implementation in residential neighborhoods in the city of Nis. The results of this research can serve as a basis for promoting the application of community gardens in our urban theory and practice.
