Leisure, as one of the social functions of the city, plays an important role in the health of the population, but has suffered interference along the modifications of the postmodern urban layout. Urban fragmentation and monofunctional zoning tend to reduce public spaces as commuting circuits, wich directly affect the quality of spare time, especially for low-income citizens. As a result, the emptying of the center of the city at times that exceed comercial hours, keeps the population away from staying in places intended for leisure. In this sense, the pesent study, based on the combination of bibliographical research,case study and quali- quantitative analysis model, we sought to assessthe appropriation of te squares in the Historical Polygonal of São Carlos, bringing to light the importance of leisure as a social function of the city and as a fundamental right to the citizens. An on-line interview was requested, via google forms, and the responses were combined with what the literature offers. Through the results obtained, it was possible to observe that little has been done so that the spaces aren’t updated to human needs. It was seen that the available equipment does not correspond to the expectations of the population in order to garantee the social right to leisure in the region. There is a large number of banks, disproportionate to the number of dumps, large ways to walk, but few opportunities for stationary activities. It is expected that the approached methodology will erve as a motto for future studies, both in diferente regions of the municipality, as in other médium cities, with a view to reduce socio-envvironmental diferences and ensure orderly and sustainable development.
