Climate change that occurs in Indonesia can lead to the increase in urban areas temperature, which makes the forest’s role to control the urban microclimate is important. Urban Forest in Jakarta adjacent to the settlement, hence it is important to determine the participation and perception of the surrounding community in urban forest management. The management consists of planning, maintenance, protection, utilization and monitoring. This study observed two urban forests, namely Rawa Malang and Srengseng Sawah, which are located separately from each other. The urban forest was divided into three clusters, i.e: one cluster located close to the urban forest and two other clusters located farther away from the urban forests. The purposes of this study are to analyze the spatial pattern of community participation in urban forest management and to describe the factors influence perception and participation. Questionnaires distributed to 180 respondent (90 respondent at each urban forest), and the data were analyze using Scoring System and regression. The result showed the participation of the society which is influenced by four variables. Community participation in urban forest management is not influenced by the level of community education, but by good urban forest conditions.
