Abstract

Malang city has a high level of construction development causing many conversions of green open space into developed areas. One region that has a lot of green open space conversion into developed areas is Klojen Sub-Distric. The converted area is used to built a shopping center, residential areas and regional government office. This causes some environmental degradation, including increasing of air temperature in Malang city and reduced ability of green open space to produce oxygen. The purpose of this research is to optimize the ecological functions of green open space in Klojen Malang. The ecological functions that will be discussed are green open space as oxygen producer and as air temperature controller.
