Keramas Park provides the opportunities for people to travel because it carries somewhat different concept. It targets medium lower market segment but the sensation is like the upper middle. By and large, recreational activities with a wide range of games are identical to expensive price, but different from the concept promoted by Keramas Park whose price can be afforded by visitors of all walks of life.
Location of Keramas Park is quite unique because it sits in a valley. Various local plants grow flourishingly that capable of making cool atmosphere. “In the past, this location was used as a motocross arena. It was also often used to jointly watch. After a careful study, an idea emerged to create a recreational park. It is meant to give people the opportunity to travel,” said Ketut Astawa, Operational Manager of Keramas Park.
Astawa said that children to adults can enjoy the facilities at this recreational site. Especially for the kids, they can play in the pool equipped with a waterslide. They can also play mini soccer. A special package is offered to children ranging from the introduction to environment, planting trees and watching a movie about environment that can encourage all people to maintain their environment. Children can also play on trampoline and climbing wall.

Travelers can also learn about the culture as well hydroponic farming.
The admission fee is IDR 29,000 (adult) and IDR 15,000 (child) including lockers and a chance to swim as much. “We want to bring affordable recreational site for middle lower market segment, but the price is middle up market,” added Astawa regarding the concept carried by the owners of the Keramas Park, Budi Gautama and Nyoman Ngurah Rai.
Travelers can test their adrenalin by flying fox ride, paint ball and ATV ride. The rate is ranging from IDR 75,000 including insurance. Although the games are relatively modern, many local people have tried them. “The attraction inaugurated on June 13, 2015 has been visited by residents of Denpasar, Badung, Klungkung, Karangasem and Buleleng,” said Astawa who has a wealth of experience in tourism industry.
The relatively new tourist attraction is cycling. This package explores nature by cycling, starting from Kintamani area and finishes at Keramas Park. With the distance of approximately 25 km, travelers can see various activities of local community. For example, farmers are plowing a field traditionally, and a variety of local animals having been very familiar with farmers. “This cycling package is based on reservation. Therefore, we make cooperation with one of travel agencies,” he said.
