ABSTRACT: Pedestrian way is one important element in urban planning. It builds spatial network which interconnect spaces in the city. The pedestrian path has important roles which support green open space network. Network of pedestrian ways are in some cases abandoned and disregard its importance as compared to other open space determined as public space or plaza. In many cities of developing countries, pedestrian way is also malfunctioned as parking space, selling area, not even people-friendly at all. From several case studies of people friendly pedestrian in cities, this study would like to identify roles of pedestrian way in building character of city image. To sustain, the character of people friendly-pedestrian has to be included when planning pedestrian as connecting space network in the city. The results are important to give recommendations of how to implement people friendly pedestrian which serves its function, but is also convenient and builds character of the city image.
