Social problems arise from the high level of community stress in urban densely populated areas, which the most affected are children. Children need open space to play, learn, exercise, and recreation to grow and develop as well as for cognitive, affective and psychomotor skills but urban development often excludes the need for Green Open Space (GOS). Based on Convention on the Rights of the Child In 1989, children as part of the community has a fundamental right to grow and develop appropriately that must be met. The Indonesian Government seeks to fulfill the rights of children through the Child-Friendly City (CFC) program by providing child-friendly GOS, which the common problems are the scarcity of land in urban areas and the green open spaces which are not child-friendly. This research analyzed using life cycle interaction between nature system: biotic (plants, fauna), abiotic (water, climate), and human system (children, family, communities) in GOS to enhance the education for children in the urban area in Indonesia. This paper aims to review the GOS whether it has complied with a child-friendly and efforts should be made so that the existing GOS into a child-friendly and enhance the children education.
