This study presents a systematic method of evaluation with the premise that satisfaction rating scale of the walking environment will vary according to the characteristics of land use by footpath types. Ultimately, it aims to contribute to the effective management and improvement of footpaths. The result of the study shows a statistically significant difference in the indicators and it's weights for walking environment on new town, old town, commercial areas, subway station, river and park by footpath types. After applying the walking environment assessment model to some of the footpaths in Suwon, it was found that actual level can be simulated successfully in reality. Therefore, the result of the study is expected to help determining the priorities for the walking environment improvement for the local government.
