In this study, we conducted a study on a city park where the Designated Manager System was introduced and where a profit facility (cafe) was developed by Park-PFI. The target park is Shikishima Park in Maebashi City, Gunma Prefecture, a large-scale park. The first purpose of this study is to verify a system that automatically measures the walking behavior of park users. An automatic camera and a pedestrian tracking system were used. Automatic measurement was performed at the place where the cafe was to be opened, and the pedestrian traffic and walking behavior could be grasped. The walking behavior that can be measured is the pedestrian's walking locus, walking distance, walking distance, and walking speed. The second purpose is to grasp the intention of using the cafe and the evaluation of the user about the park management. According to a web questionnaire survey, 63% of the people intend to use the cafe, and 36% of the people who use the park more frequently by opening a cafe. The more people who use the park, the higher the intention to use the cafe. From the above, we obtained valuable information to verify the effects of the designated manager system and Park-PFI.
