PARIS, FRANCE - APRIL 10: Visitors stroll through The 17th-century Jardin de Tuileries leading to the western end of the Musée de Louvre April 10, 2006 in Paris, France. These are some of the first gardens in the city open to the public and are heavily used by Parisians, who stroll among its formal gardens and the outdoor sculpture yard, meet in its cafes, and enjoy its public chairs, famous for their comfort. Half the world's population now lives in cities, and this proportion is expected to grow by sixty percent in the next twenty-five years. Urban parks are valued as public spaces that enhance almost everything about the cities they serve, from job opportunities, youth development, public health, community building and an appreciation for nature and conservation. Since most urban dwellers experience nature through city park systems, these slices of green take on more and more value. The city of Paris has over four hundred parks, ranging from the 2,000 acre Bois de Boulogne, to the Jardin d'Acclimatation for children, to the Promenade Plantee, the only elevated park in the world.
