A park can be anything the individual wants it to be: a place to relax and unwind, an area you use to exercise your body, or maybe a venue for fun events.
A park is often an open-air place with fresh greenery or wide concrete areas and maybe even a playground for little kids to play in. It can contain fun things like public art and maybe a few cafe’s or even restaurants. It is a ground where you’re free to do as you like and where families can enjoy each other’s company. Here are a few of the notable parks around the globe:
Summer Palace, Beijing
This park is found in the Haidian District. The Summer Palace is 9 miles (15 kilometers) from the center of Beijing. It is the country’s most well preserved royal park and has the typical Chinese landscaping and design.
Luneta National Park, Philippines
Also known as Rizal Park, this historical park in 60 hectares of ground is dotted with different kinds of statues and monuments. It has great significance in the Philippine history because it is where Dr. Jose Rizal, the Philippines’ national hero, was executed by Spanish colonial authorities.
A marvel of the Italian renaissance, the Boboli Garden is a serene and calm place where culture and nature are set in a balance. It is full of trees and fountains that give the place such an elegant feel, with statues of figures in history and mythology, like Paris and Helen of Troy, dot the area. It is definitely an interesting place to set your sights on.
Park Güell, Barcelona
Park Güell combines art and leisure in the colorful mosaic-style of the famous architect Antoni Gaudi. The decorations are very colorful and erratically patterned with ceramic shards, making this one of the most colorful of parks in the world.
Why not try visiting some of these parks yourself next time you decide to take a vacation outside the country. Each of these parks is interesting in its own right and is a great place relax and make lots of wonderful memories.
