 Abstract
This study aims to draw the factors of support and restriction as children play in the outdoor space through their participation. The 135 students (fifth- and sixth- graders) participated in the research using the mapping method included the daily diagram and the open-ended questionnaire. As the research results, the park, the school yard, the playground and the rest space were emerged as play spaces with high utilization rate. Through the analysis of play spaces based on children's perception, the physical and social-psychological factors are drawn as the factors of support and restriction. Some physical factors such as the location are relevant to social-psychological factors such as the friend and the danger. In conclusion, the physical factors which support or restrict children's activities have to be considered with the socialpsychological factors. And the result from children's experience and perception should be basis of providing appropriate spaces for children who are actual users of play spaces.
