Green open space has a necessary environmental role especially in urban areas where the demand for built-up land increases persistently. Its significance also applies to the integrated government office complex of Boyolali Regency. This research aimed to analyze the available and required green open space in the complex using a survey method, as well as aerial photo interpretation and field observation for data acquisition. The data was then analyzed to identify the available green open space by type, as classified in Act No. 26/2007 and the Regulation of the Ministry of Public Works No. 5/2008, and the required green open space using the Gerarkis method. This research also employed in-depth interviews with several key informants to sharpen the analysis. The results showed that the area of the office complex was 21.7 ha and the available green open space was 10.4 ha, which is larger than the recommended 30% of the total area. This research also found that the required green open space according to the oxygen need in the office complex was 0.006355 ha. Therefore, the available green open space has already met not only the legal requirement but also the oxygen need.
