Cities offer great advantages to people with the opportunities they have. Same time; Because cities have a dense population and a more stressful living environment than rural areas due to their busy pace of work, people living in cities prefer various natural places in their free time. These places can be National Parks, Nature Parks, Urban Forest, Natural Monument, or Nature Parks. Nature Parks; These areas offer opportunities such as unspoiled natural structures, nature and wildlife intertwined with nature and wildlife, and the beauty of the landscape. In the study conducted in Turgut Özal Nature Park, located within the borders of Battalgazi district of Malatya city, the recreational potential of the nature park was investigated using the method of 'determining the potential of recreational spaces' developed by Gülez (1990). It has been determined that the recreation value of Turgut Özal Nature Park is 78%. Recreation areas with a score of 75% and higher according to the Gülez method are considered as 'areas with very high potential'. Therefore, suggestions are proposed to identify and remedy the deficiencies in the field to provide a better recreational service in the study area.
