The purpose of this research is to examine the potential of a segment of the Danube waterfront in Novi Sad for recreational and leisure activities. Today, the significance of the waterfront has been re-evaluated and it has become a great asset for the city, not only for the riparian ecosystem, but also in terms of public open space. The segment included in this research is a part of left Danube waterfront in Novi Sad, Serbia. The segment is a 50 m wide area, starting from the delta of the irrigation canal Danube-Tisza- Danube up to the city outskirts. It includes the river embankment and the safety zone, green areas and riverfront brownfields. The area is analysed from the aspect of land use, accessibility and availability of open space for recreational use in terms of urban equipment, maintenance and design. Furthermore, the inventory of the facilities for leisure, recreation and tourism is made. The results show that the accessibility of the Danube waterfront in Novi Sad is not satisfactory, neither in terms of water accessibility nor in terms of the access to the analysed area from the city. For the purpose of activating this area of the city as a green-blue infrastructure, the results of the analysis should be implemented by connecting, redesigning or introducing the area into the coherent system of public open space.
