Must-Visit Parks Around the World 

It would be unimaginable to picture a life in a city without parks. Parks are intrinsic components of any city. They contribute to the shape and feel of a community and its neighborhoods. Since it is essential for people to interact with nature, we all love and enjoy parks for a variety of reasons. Mostly because they provide us with fresh air, as they are the lungs of cities but also for being publicly accessible vast green spaces where we can have picnics, go for long walks, bike rides, and let the children play. 

Parks are not only good for us but also for native plants and animals, particularly in urban areas. Creating parks is an effective way to encourage the growth of native flora and fauna. This also makes the area more appealing and safe for biodiversity to relish.

Each of us probably has a favorite park, but how do we determine which are the most popular or most beautiful in the world? It is difficult to decide but Uswitch  has created a list of possibly the most picturesque ones. The list is compiled by the number of likes/tags each of these parks received on Instagram, so if your favorite park is not on the list, it doesn’t mean it is not worth visiting. It only means the parks from the list are the most visited around the year. 

So, let’s see where to go and what to see.

“Our outdoor spaces have become more valuable than ever since the start of the pandemic and it’s easy to understand why – with so much time spent indoors, having access to a big wide-open space to breathe fresh air, and relax and unwind in, is hugely beneficial to our mental and physical health’’ and we wholeheartedly agree.
