The public spaces are important part of cities because of more interactions between people occurs in there and it consistent of parts that people have physical and visual access to them. During recent years, with the loss of economic, political, cultural and social structures efficiency, urban chaos is obvious in all its aspects. Urban crisis manifests in claims of citizenship and more and more people talk about Right to the City. Actually, this approach provides an appropriate conceptual tool to criticize status quo of today’s cities. In addition, to achieve an ideal situation we can extract very rich and creative ideas from the concept of “Right to the City”. In other words, the “Right to the City” is both the issue of the current city (present city) and the issue of the ideal city (a city that should be). The purpose of this study is to investigate the urban space indices on the realization of the right to city in Kashan. According to the nature of the variables, the research method is descriptive-analytical and was conducted by a survey. Findings of the study showed that there is a significant and direct relationship between the variable of the level of desirability of public spaces and the three variables of the right to the city, i.e., allocation to the city, vitality of urban spaces and participation, at a significance level of less than 0.05.
