National Park of China (NPC) is a collection of scenic areas of the concentrated natural or cultural landscape, with great ornamental, cultural or scientific value. Nowadays the planning evaluation of NPCs shows great importance and urgency, according to NPCs’ increasing developing problems owing to China’s large population, and the current master plan due for approximately 20% NPC. However, the lack of nationally-uniform criteria and different local priorities result in incomparable conclusions for NPCs’ planning evaluation work. We mainly used the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method and the Delphi method to create a 4-level, 62-indicator system for evaluating planning implementation of NPCs. This research aims to promote the protection, management, and planning of NPCs in the future.
