Throughout history, public gardens have been spaces where one could get lost in their thoughts or imagine new possibilities. Not only do they allow people to immerse themselves in nature while getting an escape from daily routines; but they are also good for the environment, and the health and wellbeing of neighboring communities. What’s also fascinating is the way that these green havens detail the history and culture of a place through native flora and the preservation of its extraordinary landscapes.
