7 Incredible Urban Parks (Slideshow)

 

7. Central Park, New York City

We finish off with the United States’ premiere urban greenspace — Manhattan’s Central Park. After all, what could be more of an urban oasis than 843 acres of ponds, trails, gardens, and much more in the nation’s biggest and most densely populated city? Central Park, the creation of famed landscape designer Frederick Law Olmstead, opened in 1858, becoming the United State’s first public landscaped park. Today, it’s the nation’s most visited urban park.

i like best Marburgs (Germany, Hessia) botanical garden up on the hill next to the university (there ist another one in the town itself). walking through it, i got the impression of crossing into different landscapes. i very much liked the way somewhat similar, yet different trees were planted next to each other. that way, the sight is intersting and yet calming. they also got a green house with a little life butterfly exhibition and a big pond with a lot of turtles. i think, it´s somewhat small-scale compared to the above mentioned, but i´m in no position to compare.
