Abstract

Merdeka Square is one of the area in the heart of Pematangsiantar, a child-friendly open public space which has been around for hundreds of years to be a low-cost stress realving site for the people. The purpose of this study was to discover the impacts of the Revitalization of Child Friendly Open Public Space, the city park, the Street Vendors Arrangement on the happiness level of the city residents. This research is an associative type, with a sample of 272 respondents, using incidental sampling. The results of this study ”have postive and significant effects on the residents’ happiness: The park revitalization, t-count> t-table (5.046> 1.969), the partial arrangement of street vendors, t-count> t-table (8,452> 1,969) and between the park revitalization variable and street vendor, F-count> F-table (246,889> 3,029). It turns out that happiness does not mean travelling, spending a lot of money on transportation, hotels, etc., but visiting a good City Park is another choice.
