Parks and city parks
Parks generally form the green lungs of a city. City parks are a magnet for people at leisure, joggers, walkers and those with a green heart. A city park is often a statement by the city as well. Think of iconic parks such as Hyde Park, Central Park, the Bois de Boulogne and the highly popular Vondelpark. Sometimes city parks are laid out in the places where defensive walls once stood. Others arrived along the river that traverses the city. Businesses and industry.
