Sustainable development has an important role in creating children-friendly communities especially on designing neighborhood open spaces to improve the children’s health and wellbeing. This paper focuses on the children and their parents’ ideas about the quality of residential environments with focus on a new neighborhood in Zanjan city, Iran. One hundred and forty parents were answered the qualitative questions and their children were asked to paint their cognitive maps and models about ideal healthy neighborhood. The results of the study show that natural characteristics of community design, social contacts among neighbors and the children’s physical activity in playgrounds have the main role in making child-friendly communities. Using sustainable design paradigm can improve the children’s physical health and psychological wellbeing.
