The conclusion of research obtained from this study in line with hyperrealism concept formulated by Jean Baudrillard that the existence of Taman Cerdas used only as the symbol/sign communicating to the public that Surakarta had become the Proper City for Children. However this sign was not a reflection of reality meaning, because in fact the Taman Cerdas could not function optimally in meeting the children’s needs. Thus the Smart Park only functioned as a symbol of Surakarta as Proper City for Children. Keywords: Taman Cerdas , Proper City for Children, hyperreality, symbolization
