The Value of City Parks

City parks play a vital environmental role. Viva urban ecotourism!

What is the value of a city park? Imagine New York City without Central Park, Sydney without Centennial Park or Mexico City without Chapultepec? Green spaces define the character of the city.

City Parks (145+ members) is a popular group on Flickr. As of September 2009 nearly 1,000 photos have been contributed by members around the world. Have a spare hour?! Check out the slideshow. What I find most inspiring are the pocket parks and lesser known spaces that I’ll be certain to check out in person.
