Public open space in a city must accommodate recreation activity for its citizens. As a recreation place, public open space offers many outdoor activities such as passive recreation and active recreation. The execution of those activities should be accommodated by the physical element at the park. One of the physical aspects that must be there and could accommodate the activity is the sitting place. Sitting place in an open space is not only a place to sit but should trigger another activity to happen. This phenomenon could be explained by affordance theory. Affordance is how the environment provides a lot of possibilities for a human to do an activity with so many different ways. Bintaro Xchange Park and Banteng Field Park are two parks that have some sitting place to accommodate the outdoor activity. This research will be using literature review, observation, and interviewing the park visitors to know how they occupied the space at the sitting place in the park. This study examines how passive and active recreation could happen at the sitting place in the park.
