The role of great landscape design in an urban area is very important. In the concrete jungle, green space that is well integrated into the city structure will give residents of highly urbanized cities a place where they can have a peaceful respite from the stress that city living can bring. It is possible to have trees, lakes, rivers, flowers, and wildlife in the middle of the city with careful and thoughtful planning. Here are some examples of green spaces found in highly urbanized New York City.
Perhaps one of the most iconic when it comes to urban landscape design is the Central Park.
