Field studies showed that middle area of Taleghan watershed is currently applied as recreational sites for urban as well as rural inhabitants. Therefore, it is essential to evaluate the environmental capabilities of the studied area to find the most appropriate places as recreational sites. For this purpose, numerous studies are to be carried out considering variable criteria and selection of the suited management solutions amongst numerous alternatives is to be performed. Traditional methods require costly and time-wasting plans which lack sufficient accuracy. In this study, spatial multicriteria evaluation based on fuzzy methods as well as analytical hierarchy process were applied to locate the recreational sites. Results showed the advantages of the studied method in comparison with Boolean logic. Also, analytical hierarchy process is an appropriate tool for locating various land uses.
