With the advancement of economic development and urbanization, most of the young and middle-aged laborers in rural areas have entered the city to work, resulting in a large number of left-behind elderly people in rural areas. This paper studies the rural public space design strategy in the Wuling Mountain area from the perspective of the livable needs of the elderly. Firstly, it expounds the necessity of creating a livable public space environment, and then analyzes the components of the livable public space for analysis. Finally, the design strategy of livable public space is discussed in order to contribute to the development of rural construction in Wuling Mountain.
