  • The most exciting city parks in the world

    Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris

    A city without some green space is a sad city, and when it comes to city parks there can never be too many. And while a little patch of green will always make the urban jungle seem like a more pleasant place, it must be said that some city parks are just better than the others.

    Creating a city park that tempts you to walk right in every time you pass it by is no easy feat, but some of these parks that you find all over the planet are so beautifully and elegantly executed that you’d have to be a true nature hater not to give in, and take a stroll. So here are some of the most exciting city parks in the world.

    Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris

    French gardens and parks, especially those that were created in the times of the monarchy, are some of the best examples of using nature’s assets to create something beautiful and at the same time ordered and elegant. The park’s history can be traced back to the 17th century, but since it’s opening as a public park, it has been much expanded and improved. Look for the statues of the old kings and queens of France scattered around the park.

    Beihai Park, Beijing, China

    Beijingers of all ages for for their daily breath of fresh air to Beihai Park, a vast imperial park set around a magnificent lake. This is one of the oldest gardens in China, built in the 10th century, and although much in it has changed, there are areas in the park when you can almost feel the past coming alive. The park is full of historical monuments, temples and palaces.

    Central Park, New York, USA

    Central Park is one of the most iconic parks in the world, an oasis of green in the middle of a concrete jungle. This park is where eccentrics, artists, businesspeople, tourists and afternoon walkers congregate in a bustle of people going about their business and enjoying the relatively fresh air, the shade of the trees, the green lawn and quiet (again, relative).

    Phoenix Park, Dublin, Ireland

    If you can tear away yourself from Dublin’s amazing pubs and historical attractions, you can take a breather in Phoenix Park, one of the largest enclosed urban park in Europe.

    This park has gardens, monuments and even wildlife (since the 17th century, there has been a herd of fallow deer living in the park, so you  might see them grazing or frolicking).

    Chapultepec Park, Mexico City, Mexico

    The current Chapultepec park is located at the site of the former summer residence of the Aztec rulers. This immense park has several lakes, museums, forests and gardens, and even the residence of the president of Mexico, but luckily you don’t have to be a state head to enjoy the beauty of this park.
