The rapid development of the city has made the green open space more limited, including for urban forest development in Samarinda. This study aims to analyze the attitudes of the community towards the preservation of the city forest of Samarinda. This research is a quantitative descriptive research using descriptive statistical data analysis from the survey method. The result showed that most people of the city of Samarinda did not know the entire green area of the city represented by the availability of urban forests and city parks, due to the lack of green areas, whereas the existence of urban forests is believed to be very beneficial for the balance of urban life on environmental quality. Besides that, the people of the city of Samarinda think that the policy of preserving green areas including urban forests needs to be a priority for the City Government in development, considering the total area of urban forests in Samarinda is only 0,96% of the total area of the city which reaches 718 km2. The availability of green open space in the city of Samarinda is also increasingly limited to be developed as urban forests.
