The aim of this study is to investigate and analyse the forward looking green area system planning principles of the Kucukcekmece district from the point of view of sustainable growth and development potential and to explain the importance of green areas. This study has been conducted on the basis of the zoning plan on a 1/5000 scale for the Kucukcekmece district, and on quantitative data obtained from on the site research. As a result of this study, conclusions have been reached that the existing green areas of Kucukcekmece district are insufficient from a quantitative point of view, that they are distributed unevenly in the district as a whole, and that they are not used effectively from the point of view of the dynamics of sustainable growth and development. Proposals have been made concerning the future of the green area system from the point of view of sustainable growth and development.
