Today, air pollution is considered as one of the most complicated and critical issues influential in people’s health to the extent that it is even sometimes regarded as a crisis in human societies. As it is known, developing urban green space is a way of reducing air pollution and on the other hand, destroying urban green space is highly influential in increasing air pollution and consequently in endangering people’s health. In the present study, it has been tried to put forward some strategies for preserving and developing urban green space and also the role of selecting plants types in urban green cover has been investigated..
