Green accessible public spaces that could induce social and cultural interactions has long existed in the form of the holy shrine of Imamzadehs, pilgrimage-promenade places in Iran. The two elements of water and plants that are considered sacred and respectable in Iranian beliefs were sanctified due to adjacency to the holy shrines of the Imamzadehs. However, the green public space during the transition period from tradition to modernity in Pahlavi era, was designed in form of new urban parks similar to that of western countries. In spite of providing vaster green space, their estrangement with Iranian thoughts and beliefs led to their detachment from people. This paper aims at reviewing and comparing various features of green public space in traditional and modern periods, in order to scrutinize and analyze the reasons for detachment of the contemporary green spaces despite their increased per capita in urban spaces.
