چکیده [English]

Each society provides the suitable context for the development and progress by means of
researching; because research shows strength and weakness, desirability and undesirability, effective and
ineffective factors and so on. Nowadays, the design and maintenance of green spaces in urban areas is
one of the fundamental strategies which is adopted by city planners in order to provide human’s health
by means of organized connection to nature. In a neighborhood full of multi-storey buildings, existence
of public parks and green spaces provides the suitable solution to man’s relationship with nature, in this
way the physical and mental health of man will be provided. Architects, landscape designers and urban
planners have reached some conclusions about the nature of human’s thoughts and behaviors by studying
speculative philosophy and behavioral science. On the other hand, architecture, landscape and urban
design theories in recent years indicate that designers and people’s beliefs about the ideal environment
are different. Many environments where have been considered appropriate by designers, had been boring
and dead and without respect to human from users’ perspectives. Therefore, it is important to assess
people’s opinions about the quality of environment. The research was based on qualitative method using
the approach of casual-comparative to investigate the factors which effect on residents’ satisfaction in
Shafagh Park. The sample size is consisted of 60 local residents who are frequent users of the park
and most of them have lived near the park for many years. The influences of physical, natural, sociopsychological
factors and utility service factor on satisfaction were asked of all respondents. Finally, the
Likert scale was used to obtain residents’ satisfaction level. According to findings, physical factor, natural
factor and socio-psychological factor have been effective in increasing the satisfaction level, but utility
service factor has little impact on the satisfaction.
