This research conducts one-to-one survey in respect of the users' state for the Suseong Pond, Sincheon and Palgeocheon, which have different characteristics of Daegu City, South Korea. From the research results, it is found that the Suseong Pond has many facilities to enjoy such as cafe, restaurant, amusement park, small boat etc. The facilities are highly used by young adult group (20 and 30s) with well-established trails, sports facilities, etc. The Sincheon is utilized for walking and exercising by the senior group (60s) with festival, educational experience and theme, amusement facilities, etc. The Palgeocheon, which is a waterside space of downtown area, is utilized for walking and exercising by the residents group (40 and 50s), who mostly live within 1 km from the stream, with amusement facilities, convenience facilities etc. Based on this research, we propose that the characteristics of waterside and its surrounding area should be investigated and considered for the development of waterfront space to reflect users' characteristics and requirements. The development of waterfront space reflecting the characteristics of users, stream, lake and facilities is expected to attract more users and enhance their satisfaction significantly.
