City is a dynamic place that includes social, cultural, spatial, environmental and economic features inside it. City gains qualification and takes form through these feature’s powers and size. According to time and age requirements city’s pattern has changed and these differences in city’s pattern determine city’s identity. With city’s growth and change we can see dynamism in land use. New settlements, industrial areas, trade blocs, education and health institutions can be seen as indicators of this dynamism. Every city has its own, unique type of dynamism and this dynamism shows us cities growth capacity and their potential. In some cities this dynamism grows fast but on the contrary in some cities this dynamism is slow. The purpose of his study is to show us this dynamism of Isparta (Turkey). Isparta is an old and historical place. It connects Central Anatolia, Aegan and Mediterranean Region to each other. Isparta gained its substantial developments in Republic Period of Turkey.
