Evaluation of Pedestrianized Streets in Terms of Landscape Design and User Satisfaction: The Case of Antalya-Şarampol Street
Due to the urbanization in the world, there is a great increase in the number of vehicles in the cities. The increase in the number of vehicles causes an increase in vehicle roads and prevents the pedestrians to move comfortably and safely in the cities. This situation affects negatively the individuals living in urban areas in terms of social, economic and physical aspects. Antalya where the research area is located is one of the Turkey's most important tourism centers. Şarampol Street, located in the center of Antalya city, is one of the most densely used streets in the city. In 2017-2018, the street was closed to traffic within the scope of urban design and landscaping project. Thus, the street has been pedestrianized by the spatial arrangements realized within the scope of the project. In this study, it is aimed to investigate the pedestrianization of Antalya-Şarampol Street in terms of landscape design and user satisfaction. In this context, as a result of the evaluation of the data obtained from the analyzes, 82.3% of the users stated that they were satisfied with the project which realized in the street. They also stated that after the implementation of the project, the street became a center of attraction for the region. As a result recommendations have been made to increase the spatial quality of the research area and to increase user satisfaction.
