Users' attitude about recreational spaces is one of the most important criteria in urban planning. Different situations of the dwellers and social groups in the cities bring about different needs and requirements that should be considered in planning. Knowing these needs and requirements will be a great help for urban planners. It seems that in planning for recreational spaces in Tehran "people's attitudes" has been completely ignored. This lack of attention can be considered as the lost circle in the chain of planning process. One of the main goals of this analysis is to evaluate the factors influencing peoples' attitude on distribution, variety and …of recreational land use. To achieve such a goal, mathematical methods have been used. In this research, Robert's Model for evaluating the needs for recreational spaces has been used. This model analyzes the relations between all the factors related to people and facilities. Research methodology is a descriptive survey type by using the resources documents. In this study, three different regions were chosen as research areas. Then Cochrane formula was used to estimate the size of sample community. Meanwhile to evaluate the citizens' viewpoint, a questionnaire was prepared.
Based on the facts and figures of this research, variables such as age, education, the quality of services and optimal location of recreational land use show correlation with the needs for recreational spaces. It means that these variables have the power to predict the needs for recreational land use. Education has the greatest effect comparing with the other variables. In other words, the more educated people in one region, the greater need is for recreational land use.
The results and findings of the research show that in Tehran the traditional patterns of spending leisure times are changing rapidly and in its modern forms it will face with great challenges. Therefore, the authorities and urban managers should take this into consideration and make a serious effort to promote the recreational land use standards in this city.
