Abstract: In this research, the riverfront space are examined with regard to their function as public places that are adjacent to water. Certain characteristics of waterside designs are evaluated, and the interrelations between these characteristics and the approachability of the urban riverfront space are analyzed. It is found that developing the riverfront space more comfortable and natural encourages people to use the waterside recreation. Some of the ways that comfort and naturalness can be improved are as follows: provide richly varied environment in the high water channel, reduce the horizontal distance between the low water channel and place from which it is viewed, keep to a minimum the gradient from which the low water channel is viewed, and change from man-made surface materials to plants and natural stones.
