Urban spaces are reliable and accessible places that allow people to socialize. Urban green areas improve people's quality of life. Creating high-quality living cities is the result of balanced spatial relationships between the open and green areas, compatible with the environment. The plants are important natural elements that add meaning to the space from aesthetic and functional point of view. However, functional and ecological conformity criteria are not aesthetic limitations. In this case it is not easy to come to a definite judgment in terms of aesthetics. Planting is a basic principle in terms of line, form, texture and color aesthetics from design criteria. In this study, the applicability of the vegetable touch, which is the key element in the urban green spaces, was investigated in terms of ergonomics. Existing plants used in Atapark in Trabzon were evaluated according to their ergonomic design elements. In addition, according to the places of use of plants according to the anthropometric measures of people were evaluated.
