Surabaya City's tourism has potentials throughout its landscape, such as beaches, seas, floral, and faunas. Therefore, synergistic tourism areas must be developed, thus it can be used to entice more local or foreign tourists. Park and environmental tourism in Surabaya has three themes of, 1) beach-sea-fresh water, 2) flora and fauna, also 3) theme park. Recently, the park and environmental tourism destination do not have the needed connection between each other. The effort of park and environmental tourism development is done through engagement approach using Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) which involved an area's stakeholders. The stakeholders are able to enrich the tourist attractions' characteristic through Focus Group Discussion (FGD), map the tourist attractions' locations using ArcGIS, and give suggestions in choosing the routes by considering the accessibility, distance, and transportation of the tourist attraction sites at Surabaya. These characteristics are parts of the achieved research target. The existence of park and environmental tourism route map as an integration of park and environmental tourist attraction is expected to increase the amount of reachable locations and is able to promote more tourist attraction sites.
