Background: Health, safety, and environmental status of the parks are essential issues that must be addressed before accidents and the resulted complications. Given the importance of safety for people, especially children in parks and, on the other hand, regarding the traditional approach for managing urban parks in Iran, which focuses on the problems after a crisis and the associated significant physical and financial losses, this study attempted to systematically review the health, safety, and environmental (HSE) status of the urban parks in Iran.
Materials and Methods: A systematic search for the studies published in Persian until 2018 was conducted in Google Scholar, SID, and MagIran databases. Health and safety status was assessed using the factors, including a sense of safety, legible design, physical safety, lighting, physical accessibility, environment, special facilities, and health safety. Other information was collected using a questionnaire.
Results: Twelve studies were included in the review. The results showed that the HSE status of the urban parks in Tehran City and other major cities of Iran was poor to moderate. In other cities, the poor HSE status was also observed.
Conclusion: Considering the poor HSE conditions of the urban parks in Iran, the implementation of a comprehensive HSE management program is recommended.
