Cities develop identity by the historical resources they have. This is possible by ensuring the continuity of historical resources, as well as their inclusion in urban design and reflection on the city's identity. In this context, the “Fortified Area Headquarters Command Post”, which made it possible panoramically to monitor ships entering the strait during the Battle of Canakkale and carried great significance in changing the course of the battle in our favor, was chosen as the subject of this study because it was found valuable in terms of cultural landscaping. The area of research, in addition to its historical significance, has a view where the city and the Canakkale strait can be observed with a broad perspective. It was utilized by Cevat Paşa as an observation point during the Battle of Canakkale because of the location‟s command over the city with a broad perspective. While the studies about the area determined that the Hasan Paşa farm containing the observation point was used as residence and the naval battle was controlled from there, it was aimed here to integrate this historical area into the recreation of the city. In the light of this purpose, cultural and natural resources of the area were analyzed, activities of war that took place in the area were determined, and a landscaping design where history may be taught by keeping it alive in the area was developed.
