Strengthening and expanding urban, active, dynamic and vibrant public spaces have been considered by urban planners as one of the strategic goals of enhancing the quality of the urban artificial environment. The revitalization of urban life requires humanizing and then humanizing it. The purpose of this article is to analyze the physical-spatial status of the 17th of September Tehran pavement in order to create a lively environment to attract population and spend leisure time. The research method is descriptive-analytical. The indices and data used are documented and field survey collected. Data analysis was performed using Arc GIS software. Analyzes show that more than half of the area is inappropriate for walking and leisure use, and nearly 65 percent of the activities offered are not in a catchy area, and the access status of the area is assessed by appropriate public and private transport. Most of those in the area came from neighboring areas and fewer people from the north and west. The results of this study indicate that planning and designing the built environment has a great role in the development of walking because in the northern part of the area, due to the variety and flexibility of the activities and activities compared to the middle and south sections, the population density is higher and pedestrians are more likely to be affected. More traffic in that area, and more attention to the structure and body of the environment, in addition to limiting the accessibility of cars, to increase the walking ability and vitality of the environment.
