This book grew out of an international conference held in Stockholm in 2015. It presents 30 large urban parks in different places around the world – Mexico City, Harbin (China), Chorzów (Poland), and Ibadan (Nigeria) – along with well-known parks such as Central Park in New York. Through maps, photos, and ten survey articles by renowned scholars, it addresses topical issues such as climate mitigation, biodiversity, city identity, social cohesion, health, and design. Of interest to anyone who loves parks and their history, it argues that urban green spaces should be planned with the same attention, detail, and quality as housing, transport, and other infrastructure.
