Enclosed with agricultural lands, Ortaca is well known with its holiday resorts such as Sarigerme with a long coastal strip and Dalyan with the sea turtles and the rock graves of the ancient city of Kaunos. In line with recent policies aimed at opening the region to tourism, Ortaca is growing fast and unplanned. The starting point of this study is the unplanned, insufficient, divided and disconnected public open spaces of Ortaca which are far away to respond the requirements of people. In this context; the purpose of this study is to argue out entirely the public open spaces of Ortaca district to redevelop the image of the town and to make a progress in the physical, cultural and socio economical structure.
