Green corridors are areas or bands that play the role of separating two functionally different areas with natural elements usually different types of vegetation (trees, shrubs, flowers, and grass). Another important feature of green corridors is linking the leafy area into a unique whole. In this case, prevent fragmentation habitat corridors and represented areas in which it can develop biodiversity. If the green corridors are along the banks (lakes, rivers, seas, channels) their importance is increasing. Green corridors that follow the coastline, depending on the types of trees and shrubs may have a significant impact on water levels and groundwater levels. In social terms microclimate conditions of green belts along the water allows the development of a number of functional programs. If these corridors are within the urban structure benefits that these areas provide their citizens are manifold. The variety of content along the coast can have a positive impact on mental and physical health of users. The banks and their contents must be designed and made available to all residents because it will be the only way to enable their everyday use that leads to positive results for the health of the individual. In this sense, the selection of functions, their positioning along a green corridor and the water's surface, and the distance between certain functional content must be carefully thought out. All functions within the Green corridors along the banks of the Danube and the canal Danube-Tisa-Danube (DTD) in Novi Sad must be connected with continuous pedestrian and bicycle communication - paths. Bearing in mind that the bike trail corridor Eurovelo 6 in its one part passes through the territory of Novi Sad this association is even more significant. In order to fulfil the requirement of accessibility of these paths along the coast, they must be associated with the entire system of walking and biking paths throughout the city. The city network of these paths must also be associated with a network of interurban and suburban areas in the immediate environment of Novi Sad. The theme of this paper is to explore the potential that provides the left bank of the Danube and both banks of the canal DTD in Novi Sad. Part of the research paper is to identified the existing facilities and it’s important for recreation and socialization for all residents particularly ones living along the Danube and canal DTD waterfront.
