Natural ecosystems provide necessary services for human being, including ecosystem service values (ESVs) and socioeconomic service values (SSVs). However, few empirical studies focused on the value orientations of ESVs and SSVs, which mainly related to people’s interaction with nature. This study, based on the level of interaction by people and greenspace, proposed a perspective of exposed greenspace and non-exposed greenspace and reclassified greenspace and its value orientations of ESVs and SSVs. According to previous study, we applied an expert questionnaire to survey the SSVs value orientations of four typical greenspaces, (forestland, grassland, wetland and water bodies) and compared quantitatively the value orientations between the ESVs and SSVs of greenspace in China. The results showed that: (1) combining the ESVs and SSVs, the values of exposed greenspace were relatively far higher than non-exposed greenspace. (2) The forestland and grassland had relatively high ESVs and SSVs (ESVs Forestland =3.87, ESVs Grassland =3.52, SSVs Forestland =4.12, SSVs Grassland =4.12), and occupied the priority for both the exposed and non-exposed greenspace. (3) Wetland had relatively high ESVs (3.71) but low SSVs (2.56), which was unpopular for exposed greenspace. (4) The ESVs (3.51) and SSVs (3.55) of water body were relatively balanced. Our study provided an innovative perspective to explore the value orientations of greenspace, which contributed to a scientific basis for planning, design and construction of greenspace in human habitat.
