KOMPAS.com – One of Jakarta’s oldest recreational parks, Taman Impian Jaya Ancol (Tija), has been reopened in stages since June following the easing period of large-scale social restrictions measures in Indonesia. Visitors, however, are required to follow the rules to have safe outdoor activities amid Covid-19, especially at the beach area.
Head of Corporate Communication Department Rika Lestari recently said there are some requirements and the health protocols to follow. The management of Tija has limited the number of visitors to 50 percent of its capacity. To do so, Tija will only approve visitors who are holders of Jakarta identity cards when making an online reservation before their visit.
Rika said that beachgoers are currently not allowed to swim in the beach in Ancol, which is one of the most popular destinations among Tija’s visitors.
“Restrictions have been put in place at the beach. Swimming is prohibited,” said Rika during a previous live streaming event.
“A designated area of 4x4 meters is provided for each group of visitors with a two-meter distance from one group to the next to avoid physical contact between families of visitors,” she added.
Audio messages are relayed to the visitors via speakers, she said.
There are changes in operating hours and gate access during the transition period. Weekdays visitors can enter the Tija complex from its east gate while in the weekend both west and east gates are opened. Visitors can also come to the Ancol area by using a Transjakarta bus. The beach opens from 6am to 8pm.
At the entrance gate, visitors’ body temperatures are checked and people are required to wear a mask. Visitors are required to make an online reservation via www.ancol.com and click the ticket menu. Currently, only visitors who hold Jakarta identity cards and those aged 9 to 50 are allowed to make a reservation.
During the previous three-day Idul Adha holidays, around 8,000 visitors made their way to Ancol each day.
