Distributive justice emphasizes the equitable allocation of resources among members of society. The way services and facilities are distributed ultimately affects citizens' satisfaction. From John Rawls' theory of distributive justice, no inequality is permissible unless it benefits the low-income class. The aim of this study is to investigate the level of satisfaction of citizens of District 6 of Mashhad Municipality with urban parks from the perspective of distributive justice. The method of data collection is documentary and survey. In the field stage, after designing a questionnaire in the form of seven indicators and 38 items, its reliability was confirmed by Cronbach's alpha coefficient of 0.735. Then, using Cochran's formula, 384 citizens of the district 6 of Mashhad Municipality were interviewed and the results were analyzed using SPSS software. The results show that the indicators of access, health, security, services and management have the lowest, and the indicators of furniture and quality of green space have the highest, the level of satisfaction of the citizens of the district. The majority of respondents are dissatisfied with the number and location of parks. From the point of view of Rawls' theory of distributive justice, the low satisfaction of citizens, which indicates the distribution, access and poor quality of parks, can also be interpreted as unfair, and the district 6 of Mashhad, as one of the deprived areas of the city, has less justice in this regard.
