The purpose of this research is to analyze the process of expanding commoning that happens when children produce playgrounds in the streets. The responsibility imposed by the award received by Depok with the title of the child-friendly city is questioned in this research. We use the theory of expanding commoning by Stavrides to analyze the continuity of production of children's playgrounds in the street. The research method used is a qualitative method by conducting a discourse on the theory of common space and correlating the theory of expanding commoning with the theory of lived space. We conducted field observations in two different streets to make a comparison about which street's characteristics produce continuous lived space. Our study shows that access for children to use other people's resources, to control the programming of space, and to reach out to the social space easily are the factor that makes expanding commoning continue to happen. This research is expected to be able to broaden the knowledge about the concept of child-friendly settlements.
