The purpose of this study is to review recent causality studies on relationship between children's play environment and play behavior in residential neighborhoods. Seven key precedent studies in the past ten years have been analyzed to understand their research design structures and procedures: research objectives, research subjects & scope, and research methods. The research findings are as follows. First, complement of research design is required that both qualitative and quantitative methods are connected for examining definitive relationship between children's play environment and play behavior. Second, showing characteristics of children's play behavior, researches for children's play environment are differentiated itself from existing walkability studies of residential neighborhoods. In addition, This study highlights critical issues and methodological commonalities shared among researchers in disciplines of public health, transportation, urban planing, etc. The results of this study provides preliminary foundations and guidelines for future researches of the physical environment concerning children's outdoor play.
