The public and old spaces are the most important elements of the city and have a unique identity that has evolved during the time. All citizens also use public spaces without any restrictions and they need spaces that respond to their needs. The lack of elements of identity in public spaces has led to a diminution of the sense of attachment to them and the lack of use of these spaces; at last, problems are create for public spaces. This paper is descriptive and analytical and its purpose is to found the identities of Arg Street, in the years that this street has been formed until the 1980s, the era of the decline of this street and land use identities. The results show that Arg Street was historically in accordance with the land uses in which it was formed, had ministerial and recreational role.
