— Public space is a place for which people carry out their activities. Urban public space represents the desire of urban communities to interact with the surroundings. The development of public space use is adjusted to the increase of public activities in terms of type and intensity. Many people use streets and parks to express their activities as they are types of open and easily accessible public spaces. This study aimed to investigate the factors affecting the use of active public space, namely the corridors of Ijen and Jakarta street, and the quality of the two public spaces analyzed by using the Exploratory Factor Analysis. The variables studied were the characteristics of environmental psychology; the activities/utilization of each active public space and the preferences of the users. It was found that there were 7 (seven) factors affecting the use of active public space at the Ijen Boulevard and 3 (three) factors affecting the use of active public space at the Jakarta street.
