Short History of Public Parks

Short History of Public Parks

Early parks evolved from deer parks nobles used for hunting. United States cities constructed huge landscaped graveyards, which people used for recreational purposes. Cities next created public parks based on the cemetery concept. The desire to preserve natural areas led the establishment of the National Park System. The book includes an extensive list of US state park systems.
