An illustrated presentation of thirty large urban parks in some of the major cities of the world!

Demand for large urban parks emerged at the height of the first industrial revolution in the 1800s, when they represented new ideas of accessible public spaces, often established on land previously owned by aristocracy, royalty or the army. They represented new ideas on how city life could be improved and how large green spaces could enhance urban citizens physical and psychological well-being. World famous are Birkenhead Park near Liverpool, Bois de Boulogne in Paris, Tiergarten in Berlin and Central Park in New York City.

Today, large urban parks are habitats for biodiversity and serve climate change adaptation by reducing the urban heat island effect and risks of flooding. For people living in cities, this biodiversity represents high cultural and aesthetic values, but is also important for other aspects of health and well-being as parks provide recreational opportunities, reducing air pollution and protecting water resources.

The book details the much-needed evidence, pathways and vision for a future of more liveable, resilient cities where large urban parks are at the core. This book will help park managers, NGOs, landscape architects, and city planners to develop the green city of the future.
