This research is descriptive, namely to describe the reality of the events studied by using a sampling technique, namely Purposive Sampling. His research is based on the reference of Presidential Regulation which describes 2 planning dimensions, namely implementing guidelines and amenities. From the results of the analysis, it can be concluded from the findings that it can be explained that from the dimensions of the Implementing Guidelines, it is found that there are still many findings from the Planned Action Plan. This is due to the weakness in the budget sector which still relies on CSR funds. Furthermore, in its implementation, the majority still involve district government structural officials so that in managing geoparks there is no focus, in determining the delineation boundary it is not yet specific in each existing geosite, land status is still unclear, because it is still community property, and there is no Masterplan so that it still relies on action plans. regions and the lack of education about geoparks, so there is a need for socialization about the existence of geoparks. Furthermore, in the Amenity dimension, there are still many incomplete ones, only the sandstone geosite is complete, and the majority of cooperation partners still rely on local communities.
