People can feel affiliated with their cities through dealing with its elements and engaging in activities within its various spaces. Recreational open spaces (ROS) considered to be the essential element of vitality in human’s daily life, known internationally as the right to recreational open spaces. As discussed by World Health Organization; recreational open spaces not only indicate the quality of life in any city, but also have a direct reflection on humans’ mental and physical health. On the other hand, providing recreational open spaces is considered to represent the urban century’s dilemma. This is due to the rapid increase of local population in cities. There is a severe deficit between the standard area and the available area of ROS. To provide the intended standard of ROS area, a valid urban policy which is compatible with the city’s conditions should be formulated and followed.This research aims at a methodology for shaping an urban policy for the purpose of recreational open spaces in residential neighbourhoods. Typically following the key steps of this methodology should present an urban policy model ideologically driven from the condition of the city itself. This paper presents the complex mechanism of the ROS urban policy and how it should be correctly identified to formulate a valid urban policy model.
