The Lover River has been the most vivid urban image of Kaohsiung city. However, the environment of the Lover River and its relationship with the residents worsened rapidly along with the development and progresses of the urban economy. Recently, the government actively improves greenway landscape of the Lover River, and promotes high-quality living environment around the shores. The improvement of the Lover River seems to be successful so far. In this study, we try to evaluate the current situation of Lover River greenway through literature review, fieldtrip, and in-depth interview, Based on Fábos' theory, we classified the greenway functions of Lover River into three fundamental categories, including ”Ecological conservation”, ”Recreation”, and ”Socio-culture”. Twenty-four essential functions following these three categories were further established and been analyzed by Fuzzy Delphi Method and experts' questionnaire. Results show that there are many important greenway functions of Lover River, including ”Improving the cityscape”, ”Increasing tourism attraction”, ”Relieving mental pressure”, ”Establishing the sense of place”, and ”Integrating urban recreation functionality”. On the other hand, some greenway functions should be improved seriously in the future, including ”Linking ecological network system”, ”Improving water quality”, ”Providing water-based recreation”, ”Conserving historical legacy around the shores”, and ”Offering refuge for disaster”.
