Abstract


Today, the green space development is on the considerable rise due to the population growth and increase of urban construction as well as the human needs for green space to achieve the social, physical and spiritual balance. The green space improves the environmental conditions of cities on one hand, and provides the citizens with leisure time on the other. The present study aims at investigating the socio-psychological effects of urban parks on the improvement of citizens’ life quality via examining the factors encouraging the citizens of the Iranian city of Tabriz towards the urban parks. The findings of this research revealed that the citizens of Tabriz attend the aforesaid urban parks in order to access the clean air, family fun, pleasure, hiking and refreshment, and avoid any urban pollution and excessive small residential environment, as well as the recurring routine life.
