Abstract

After the “alle”s which were constituded in Medieval, greenways that took form with the “parkway” idea of Olmsted and Vaux in XIX. Century are the open space connectors which arrange parks, natural reserves, historical sites, and their cultural components. The greenways which have been constituted with ecological, cultural, recreational and aesthetic purposes are also important constituents of urban open and green area system. The planning approach of greenways and the open and green area systems that they connected with, have interesting examples in England and America. But in our country this planning approach hasn’t stil been settled. It’s also possible to observe this in Kayseri urban complex. However there are areas which surround the city and be considered as “greeenway”. Especially the narrow-deep valleys that surround the city from south-east are unplanned “greenways” which analyse the transition from urban to rural areas, and existing their rich cultural petterns. The city in which rapid urbanization continue with the impact of the industriy, combining with the tresholds on the south make possible of forming a greenbelt here. In this study it wil be investigated that the possibilities of forming greenways and activities in possible greenways.
