Abstract: 
Prior to any design activity, land (site) evaluation is essential to achieve an ecological sustainable design.
Since the selected area for design located in Jajroud riverside in Khojir National Park, the land evaluation was preformed so as to find suitable recreational zones. Landscape structural elements (patches and corridors) as well as configuration of riverside vegetation which create natural patterns, were investigated for the purpose of considering chorological relations across ecosystem (landscape evaluation).
So, the optimal site for intensive recreation development was proposed with the help of interpretation of the acquired specifications and the results obtained from land evaluation.
In addition, contextual design recommendations were provided, based on landscape ecology principles and the findings of landscape structural patterns in area of question.
