Urban gardens and public gardens from all over the world

City gardens and public gardens

Urban parks, squares and gardens are specially planted green spaces in the urban space. Urban gardens were laid out as far back as the ancient world, such as the Hanging Gardens of Semiramis. Park art came to Europe from China, where it originated. In Europe, the concepts of garden art were developed: the regular (French) park and the landscape (English) park.

Another type of parks are botanical gardens, originating from monastery gardens and apothecary gardens. In contrast to ordinary parks, botanical gardens collect a collection of plants and trees for educational and research purposes.

The Prater Park, one of the oldest and most famous parks in Vienna, offers attractions for all tastes, from the old Ferris wheel to high-speed flights.

Park Guell, Barcelona, Spain. Take a picture with Gaudi’s dragon

Park Guell is probably the most unusual park. It leaves a surprisingly coherent impression thanks to the harmonious combination of architecture and landscape. The park was designed in the early 20th century. It was originally intended to be a small garden city, privately owned. However, only 2 houses were built out of the planned 60. In one of them the famous architect Antonio Gaudi lived from 1906 to 1926. Subsequently, this house became a Gaudi museum.

The unique look of the park gives a very characteristic Gaudi architecture, colonnades, traditional Catalan tiles, “organic” forms, repeating the natural and therefore fit so well with it. Legend has it that workers collected pieces of tile and bottle glass from all the surrounding streets to decorate the facades, columns, benches and sculptures with majolica. One of the most striking and famous sculptures in the park is the dragon, to take a picture with which is considered the sacred duty of every tourist.

In 1984 Park Guell was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Central Park, New York, USA. The largest and most famous

This is one of the largest urban parks in the world, with nearly 3.5 million m2. Central Park is a model park, a very successful project that serves as a reference point for urban planners in many parts of the world. The landscape architect, Frederick Law Omstead, who won the competition to design the park, wanted to create a space for recreation and meditation, a place where everyone would be happy to come, regardless of their social status. In the mid-60s, Central Park went through a period of decline when gangs of hooligans and raiders drove ordinary residents out of the park. Central Park was revived only due to the initiative of the citizens who developed the concept of park renovation and monitored its implementation, and several years later it became a popular place for walking and recreation again.

Important events of modern culture unfold in the territory of Central Park: it often serves as a site for filming movies, a landscape in literary works, and a concert venue. And many people don’t hesitate to classify it as a historical monument.

Beihai Park, Beijing, China. Standing on Tradition

Beihai Park is located in central Beijing. Historically it was the imperial gardens (until 1925 the park was a private property of the imperial court) located on the perimeter of the Forbidden City. It is one of the oldest parks in China, more than 1,000 years old.

Beihai Park was built according to an ancient Chinese legend. The legend says that there were once three magical mountains in eastern China – Penglai, Yingzhou and Fangzhang. These mountains were home to gods who possessed the knowledge of medicinal herbs that granted immortality. Many emperors in their quest for immortality constantly sought out these mountains, or at least tried to recreate them. So, too, Beihai Park is located on three islands symbolizing these three magical mountains. Beihai Park is a great escape from the hectic pace of life in modern Beijing. Tourists can find a huge number of cultural and historical treasures within the park, mostly dating back to the Ming Dynasty.

Luxembourg Garden, Paris, France. A center of government and a source of inspiration

The Luxembourg Garden was the first French garden and park to be influenced by the Italian Baroque. Construction of the palace and design of the garden began in 1612. Princess Maria de Medici (1573-1642), who later became Queen of France, lived in the palace. The Senate now sits in the Luxembourg Palace.

Despite the classic layout, the Luxembourg Garden is quite comfortable for recreation: there are tennis courts and playgrounds for children. There are more than a hundred sculptures in the garden, including statues of Stendhal, Chopin, Montesquieu, Baudelaire and Delacroix.

The Luxembourg Garden is not only the center of political life and leisure of the citizens, it has served as a source of inspiration for famous artists. We can see the Luxembourg Garden in the paintings of Matisse, Renoir, Tissot and other artists.
