ABSTRACT

This study investigated the economic value assessment of Suwon-cheon which has been characterized as a leisure place in the living space of Suwon’s citizens. Activity involvement means the degree of their leisure activity achievement and place attachment means their psychological reaction to Suwon-cheon. The research process and method of this study were designed by following guidelines as presented in the NOAA report. The survey was performed over a period of 2 weeks from September 4 to 18, 2016 in Mt. Gwanggyo, Hwaseong Place, Lake Gwanggyo Park, Suwon Je-il Church and other locations. Quota sampling was employed throughout this study. Results of data analysis showed there was a difference between the main variables of activity involvement and place attachment. In the case of activity involvement, it showed no statistically significant effect on willingness to pay for restoration/preservation of Suwon-cheon, however all of the sub-factors of place attachment – place dependence, place identity and social bonding - were verified antecedent variables of a willingness to pay.
