Abstract. Recently, Urban Parks presents an essential role of humanity, because they provide a many of benefits that support our physical and social health. Therefore, UP (Urban Parks) are crucial part of whole urban environment. In this paper, we present the role of Green Space in public health, and based on Geographical Information System (GIS) techniques, we will start our study with a case study of the city of Tangier in northern Morocco. The city has had remarkable development in recent years. So, the inhabitants of Tangier need demands in the public services, in particular the urban parks.So we studied the distribution of urban parks in the different commons of the city (Tangier, Charf, Benimakada and Boukhalef (Guezania previously)) by calculating the area and the number of UPs in each common, then a calculation on the indices (PAC, PAR and PR) for each region, and finally make a comparison with the situation in 2015.
