The purpose of this paper is to clarify the activities of multiple subjects based on public facilities in the suburban rural areas, the characteristics and problems of community management, the actual condition of the space in which they are deployed, and the way public spaces are managed. The subject of the research is the Takasu district of the Toride. As research methods, we conducted literature/document surveys, field surveys, and interviews with facility managers and stakeholders. Based on the results,we made the following three recommendations: 1)Give the public space a function that will be able to connect the history of the area and the relationship with the living industry and set it as the base of the area. 2)Act to encourage residents' understanding that private premises and facilities can also be public spaces. 3)Participate roles between local residents and local organizations and the administration.
