Streams and rivers are among the most fascinating and complex ecosystems on Earth. Touching all parts of the natural environment and nearly all aspects of human culture, they act as integrators and centers of organization with the landscape. Their roles in providing natural resources, such as fish and clean water, are well known, as are their roles in providing transportation, energy, diffusion of wastes, and recreation. The study was carried out in two stages by collecting and analyzing data. In this research, the factors that affect planning in Kocabas Streams anc environs (climate, demographic structure of the population, socio-economic structure) have been inspected. Current land uses in Kocabas Stream and environs have been analyzed. Also, to determine Biga Town’s city peoples request and inclination towards the recreational structure of the research area, questionnaire is made. Percent(%), mean (df) and cross tabs from statistical techniques were used in data analyzing and chi-squares (X2) analysis was used in hypothesis test.
