                         Understanding microclimate variable behavior is useful for 
                         explaining the relationship between urban sprawl and increased 
                         environmental distress. The implementation and preservation of 
                         green areas is one way to mitigate the environmental impacts of 
                         human activities. Urban parks are one common type of green area in 
                         cities. According to ISO 7243, heat exposure can be assessed using 
                         the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT). This study used 
                         multivariate statistical techniques and ordinary kriging to 
                         produce a WBGT map of the park during the dry and rainy seasons. 
                         Places with heat or freshness islands were identified. Locations 
                         along hiking trails and areas with exercise equipment were 
                         analyzed for WBGT tendencies in order to propose precautionary 
                         heat exposure measures.",
