Today more than ever cities are characterized by intensified high-level human concentration accompanied by the accumulation of the main human activities such as the economic, cultural, educational and social ones. Rising population and rapid worldwide urbanization has created enormous problems of health and environment and have raised concerns about the sustainability of cities. In this regard, on recreational areas and urban green spaces become important. The quality of green spaces helps to define the identity of towns and cities, which can enhance their attraction for living, working, investment and tourism. And, by affording important socio-economic and psychological needs, enrich human life with meanings and emotions and raise quality of life as key component of sustainability. In this study, one of famous sample of historical Persian Gardens were chosen due to its historical background as first sample of Iranian urban green spaces which are still being used actively by the residents. The issues investigated are functional and emotional dimensions involved in the experience of garden and its importance for people's general well-being.
