Sanandaj city as the capital of Kurdistan province enjoys a special position at the provincial level and its
physical development and growth has been impressive in recent years. The important point here is that growth
course of the population of the city is faster than its harmonious and sustainable development course; and the result
of this event is marginalization increase, overcrowding and population density, urban traffic problems and especially
environmental problems. One component that can restore balance to the urban development state is developing
parks and green spaces that are considered one of the most important factors of sustainable development. Therefore,
this paper attempts to review the status quo of parks and green spaces of Sanandaj and then compare it with the
existing standards. Then by analyzing the collected data and comparing it with ideal and optimal status proposed
strategies for the development of parks and green spaces be explained. Hence, some part of the mission of urban
sustainable development which is truly green spaces development and its ecological improvement can be answered.
