In this study, network analysis process was used for appointing importance of effective criteria and indices on locating and suitable site selection for forest park development. For this purpose, quantitative criteria was determined, and qualitative ones weighted using paired comparison. Regarding to the most important criteria or indicator of choosing the location of forest park, six regions were identified as options for decision making model. Finally, for selecting suitable site, qualitative and quantitative factors were combined using analytical network process (ANP) and the weight of options were identified. The results of important criteria weighing process for selecting suitable forest park location showed that amongst 7 selected main criteria, water resources criterion with the weight of 0.42 is the most important and climate, landscape and plant-animal criteria were placed in next priorities respectively. In case of sub-criteria of climate, Average of rainfall with weight of 0.5 had the highest weight. Distance of water resources sub-criteria with weight of 0.48 was the most important one for water criteria. The variety of forest covering with the weight of 0.52 was the most important sub-criteria of plant-animal criterion. The most important sub-criteria related to socio–cultural criterion was security by weight of 0.56. The results of options prioritization showed that the “Nizh–Darreh" region with weight of 0.3 should be considered as the best place for forest park.
