Rapidly developing industry and urbanization cause disturbance of the environment. Without a doubt, this process has negative effects on all living beings. Conversion of the existing natural areas to the areas which can meet various needs of people in addition to the organisms living in that area by taking such natural areas under conservation is of great importance for our world. This study was conducted in 2016 in order to determine the recreational potential of Limni Lake Natural Park which is located within the borders of Gümüşhane Province. It was found that Limni Lake Natural Park has a high recreational potential due to factors such as being located near the main transportation ways, its flora and fauna, fresh air, vista spots within the area, diversity or tourism options in the surrounding areas and its positive effect on human health. The study proposed recommendations regarding improvement of various elements existing in the area which can be changed by human craft, and drew attention to recreational potential of the area in the future.
