"It would be great if this place can be developed for ecotourism. Because I believe environment cleanliness and nature conservation in this area could be maintained. Besides, it could improve economy of the locals who live near the tourist attraction," he said.

Regarding Ecotourism development, South Jakarta Sudinparbud Head, Imron conveyed, his side plans to invite visitors to walk by the Ciliwung River from Srengseng Sawah Urban Village to Lenteng Agung Urban Village.
