City parks and green spaces

City parks

Amid the hustle and bustle of urban life, city parks and gardens offer welcome respite. Time slows down as you revel in the sound of birdsong, the smell of freshly cut grass and the sight of children playing happily.

These well-tended green spaces are our pride and joy and often showcase exquisite pagodas, fragrant rose gardens and a huge array of often rare trees and shrubs. From Royal Parks, botanical gardens or simple municipal spaces, the chances to recharge are plentiful and picturesque. Take a picnic or grab a snack at a café or ice-cream stall.
