A detailed analysis conducted on selected two main streets from two different district of Antalya city, Turkey to find lightning properties and participant’s feelings on these elements. The results were evaluated according to survey obtaining and site observations as well as interviews results with Antalya City Municipal Parks and Gardens Directorate Staffs.

A number of questions were arisen to responders in order to find their feelings (opinions), on properties of lightning elements in the selected areas. It was noted that only 1.0% participant from both area reported as ‘the lack of lighting elements is not important for me’. It was found that participants have expected to proper illumination from lightning elements in these particular areas. However, the lightning elements have found to be some variables and not equally supplied lightning to throughout street landscape object.

Moreover, Republic Street’s lightning’s looks like better than Sakarya Blouvard lightning in regarding participant’s responds but with exception of plant and signages lightning. Hence, only plant and signages lightning’s were found to be better in Sakarya Blouvard than Republic Street’s lightning’s. It is important to note that the lightning design principles and lightning element selection conducted by electric technician. So there was no any landscape architectural design principles established in these streets. But, there is an exception that recently established park (in 2012) called ‘Martyrs Park’ projected by a landscape architecture. Hence, all structures including lightning elements selected and placed by landscape architecture for this park only.
