In recognizing the capital's lack of parks and public spaces, the East Jakarta administration has made the decision to develop four parks this year.

The parks are Abdurrahman Park in Cibubur subdistrict, Layangan Park in Ciracas subdistrict, Piknik Park in Cipinang Melayu subdistrict and Kopi Park in Pekayon subdistrict.

The head of the East Jakarta Forestry sub-agency, Rommy Sidartha, said the parks were not only for leisure but also areas where educational activities could take place.

“We started developing the parks last year and they can be used by the residents right now,” Rommy said on Thursday as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com.

He said the four parks were built with different concepts. Abdurrahman Park, an interactive park on 7,784 square meters of land, has a green area and jogging path.

Layangan Park (Kite Park), located on 10,116 square meters of land, was made for residents to fly kites, hence the name, he said. The park is also home to a jogging path, pedestrian plaza and man-made lake.

Piknik Park is designed for families and located on 10,078 square meters of land.

“It has a man-made lake with stepping stones in it,” Rommy said.

Meanwhile, Kopi Park was built upon 7,750 square meters of land adjacent to an integrated child-friendly public space (RPTRA).(iwa)
