Environmental, City, Quality, Urban, Density.

Urban environmental quality has a lot to do with city livability, quality of life and sustainability. The well-being, health care and general condition of urban cities have been of major concern in recent years. This work seeks evaluated and rated the environmental quality of Bonny Ancient Town. Questionnaire analysis was employed to retrieve information on individual perception of the environment. The global positioning system was used to extract the X and Y coordinates of each household as sampled. Finding reveals that the region enjoys slightly too high environmental quality across locations on the eastern part of Bonny, and also residential density influences the environmental quality as observed. It is therefore recommended that an extensive baseline studies should be conducted across Bonny local government area (LGA). And also a well-coordinated and integrated environmental management practice should be put in place in order to curb area with noticed poor environmental qualities.
