People need various social spaces in order to cope with the challenges of urban life and to be able to relax physically and spiritually. The most important of these areas is the urban green areas. Numerous researches have revealed the multi-faceted contributions of green spaces and their importance for urban life. However, in order to meet the expected functions and user needs of the green spaces, they should be ideally sized, accessible, aesthetically and functionally qualified. The aim of the study is to determine the usage of green areas of Bingöl people and the level of meeting the needs of these existing parks. Qualitative and quantitative research methods were used in the study, field surveys were conducted, and a questionnaire was created for data collection. The survey was conducted face-to-face with 610 volunteers from different demographic structures within the urban parks, participants’ workplaces and homes. The results of the survey were analyzed by using descriptive-categorical analysis methods and difference tests (Mann-Whitney U and Kruskal Wallis H) in SPSS 22 program. The findings of the study showed that the green areas in the city center were insufficient in terms of quality and quantity and they could not have met the user needs. According to the survey results, 74.1% of the participants stated that the nearest park was 0-1 km away and 58.2% stated that the green areas in the city were insufficient. In addition, the evaluation of the adequacy of the main function areas of urban parks in the research area was found to be between 1.66 and 2.73 points. As a result, it is emphasized that the green areas of Bingöl should be revised in line with the needs of the user and new parks should be planned within the framework of universal landscape design rules.
