Abstract: The main objective of the study is to estimate the willingness to pay (WTP) for conserving public parks in Nagasaki City. In doing so, contingent valuation method is applied. The results of the study showed that the residents of the Nagasaki City are willing to pay in total 920 million yen (5,225 yen per household) for preserving the public parks in the city. The negative relationship between the persons visiting the public parks and the WTP, revealed from the multivariate analysis indicates that, non-use value of public parks in Nagasaki City is also very high. Finally, based on the findings of the study, some policy guidelines were given for development and maintenance of public parks in Nagasaki City, which will in turn enhance its livability.
