—Nowadays, river conservancy and polluted/waste river reclamation had already become a significant task in city planning, as well as the re-construction of urban river channels. Different from the former river reclamation method which applies concrete bank construction, a new concept of “water-amenity park” is considered as a river-reconstruction method due to the concept of “affective engineering”. In this research, a systematic method based on affective engineering is developed to estimate urban water-amenity; 3 representative river-based water-amenity parks were selected to be estimated.
