What more than anything create a sense of belonging in humans towards an environment are changes provided by them and based on their interests or needs. In fact, a place or an element of urban development creates a higher sense of belonging in those who were involved in its formation, rather than those who had no involvement in its formation. Civil participation means a serious presence, and an active, informed and organized and effective involvement of people, groups and urban organizations in the economic, social and cultural activities in urban life, to achieve urban collective goals. Gheytarieh, one of the ancient neighborhoods of Tehran, has an old history and legacy and has been a rural area of the capital, which was absorbed over time in Tehran and has developed. Generally, in Gheytarieh’s worn out texture framework, communication networks, important historical monuments and public spaces have a particular priority. Of course, it is noteworthy that in addition to the above factors, some other factors also influence it and natural factors and gardens are of this category which is effective in determining the classification of the framework of this texture. This article is a review of people’s participation as a proposed renewal strategy of worn out textures of Gheytarieh and its influencing factors; and to ultimately assess the impact of people's participation in worn out texture of this area.
