City Park History
To understand the history of city parks in America, you should first understand the history of the city. Local governments regulate community parks and opens spaces. Through parks and recreation departments around the country, local city and county government decide where parks will be, how they will look, and the amenities each park should have. In the early days, city parks and open spaces served as community meeting places as well as serving to preserve a sense of natural beauty amidst the ever growing concrete streets. Today they serve the same purpose, but also much more. City Parks Guide hopes to help preserve this history and we hope to be part of that by offering an online forum for city and state park reviews, along with park listings, locations and information.
