The rapid expansion of urbanization and the disproportionate physical development of Tehran metropolis due to the increasing growth of population in recent decades has damaged many of the recreational and tourist areas of old Tehran. The existence of those regions could play an important role in reducing mental and emotional pressures of urban life in the present age. This has led to the emergence of high-rise buildings, the density and compression of the living space of Tehran's citizens and the decline in the amount of per capita allocations to green space and recreational use, due to the shortage and high prices of land. It seems that one of the ways out of the current situation and of compensation for the lack of per capita allocations to green space uses is the empowerment of the tourism industry with utilization of unused and immediate areas around Tehran, such as the tourist site of Rudbar-e-Ghasran in the city of Shemiranat with its natural attractions, activating of which, through removing constraints and enhancing capabilities, will play a major role in reducing the issues of Tehran metropolitan area and creating sustainable development of the studied area.
