Although named a park, its function is not really a park, but the urban forest as part of the green line that extends from the Cilakike Park to Bengawan Park. Cibeunying Park was turned into an ornamental plant stock around the 1980s. Lush trees change into plant stalls that offer plants in a variety of types and colors. Cibeunying Park is also often used as a gathering place for several communities. There is also a Bike Shelter where we can rent bicycles to get around the park. A fairly large gazebo is located in the middle of the park and there are also several places to sit and picnic around the park.
