As a result, suitable areas in respect to recreational and scenery functions are presented in the study area. The area is evaluated in 3 zones. In the proposed scenarios for these zones, the opportunities of the area as recreational, ecology and education corridors are presented through illustrations. The 1st zone is evaluated as recreational and education corridors, the 2nd zone is evaluated as recreational, ecology and education corridors and the 3rd zone is evaluated as recreational, ecology, education and scenery corridors.
