Urban parks, which can safely operate in open spaces, are emerging as a key keyword in the urban planning and development process, and urban parks are becoming a very important factor in the city at a time when interest in livable cities that provide happiness and value in life continues to increase. Therefore, this study aims to analyze urban parks that can expect positive effects in various fields by applying Kevin Lynch’s Five Dimensions of Good City Form Theory and theories on public space. In terms of the scope of the study, Busan Metropolitan City, one of the largest metropolitan cities in Korea, was designated as the scope of the study, a city with various cultures and histories. Busan has separately set and managed five landmark urban parks with different themes (Yongdusan Park, Busan Citizen Park, Geumgang Park, Jung-ang Park, and Busan Children’s Grand Park). Landmark Urban Park is suitable for detailed analysis because it reflects the symbolic elements of the city and functions as a major destination It’s going to work. Accordingly, on-site surveys, online surveys, and analyses were conducted through schematization, and problems and improvement measures were presented based on the results. Finally, it aims to identify problems through detailed analysis and present improvement measures to be used as basic data in urban planning.
