Exploring a National Park can be a breathtaking experience. City dwellers don’t always have that luxury. However, many cities around the world are home to stunning urban parks. These are our favorites.
Central Park, New York City
This sprawling park in the center of Manhattan is a popular destination for locals and tourists. The space is ideal for outdoor activities like running, bicycling, rowboating, picnicking and sunbathing. Famous park landmarks include Strawberry Fields, Wollman Rink and Bethesda Fountain.
Civic Space Park, Phoenix
Opened in 2009, Civic Space Park is a modern urban escape. The artfully designed park draws energy from solar panels. Food trucks, concerts, art installations and a splash fountain draw visitors. Light rail and bus stations are located steps away.
Namba Parks, Osaka
Namba Parks provides a contrast to Osaka’s dense urban environment. The structure spans eight levels of a 30-story office and shopping complex. Rock formations, trees, lawns, streams, waterfalls and cliffs make up the site.
Stanley Park, Vancouver
Located on the edge of downtown Vancouver, Stanley Park attracts millions of visitors annually. With skyline views, a portion of seawall surrounds the park. Family-friendly activities are ample here.
Park Güell, Barcelona
Park Güell is more a work of art than a park. Designed by famed architect Antoni Gaudì, the park features dazzling mosaics and stone structures inspired by nature. The park sits atop a hill — perfect for panoramic views of Barcelona.
