Abstract: 

Today, advances in technology and industry have led to important and basic changes in the environment. In order to modify the destructive effects of environmental damage, the most important and yet the simplest way is to extend green space. In different countries, green space extension correlates with the natural environment and technological advances in the country. Green land use as a vital element of a city has undergone many changes and along with other profitable exercises has not been attended to. The aim of this study is to identify the green land use of region 10 of Mashhad Municipality based on the existing data and the inadequacy of public urban parks according to valid standards. Citing available statistics, the results showed that the green space per capita is 6.79 square meters which is lower than the amount per person in the country. However, there are fluctuations in the level of enjoyment of green space in the three districts of region 10; district 1 and district 2 with 4.9 and 4.1 square meters enjoy the most and the least green space per capita respectively. Based on the findings, the following suggestions are proposed: considering the fair distribution of green space in the studied area as important, taking site selection criteria into consideration in land use planning, employing up-to-date means and methods, such as GIS, in analyzing information and locating green space, investigating the social and psychological effects of urban green space, taking measures to hold control and to prepare the existing urban open land, and avoiding the change of proposed urban green space use found in the comprehensive and detailed urban plans of Mashhad.
