The country park idea originated in the United Kingdom, and its purpose is widely considered to be quite a separate and unique function to parks in general. The purpose of the country park is to protect the natural environment, while at the same time it can provide urban residents in the neighboring townships and cities a place to enjoy the country's beautiful scenery and provide a place for relaxation. This book showcases many outstanding country park designs, and delves into the development of country parks, functioning also as a useful reference tool for professional designers, landscape architects and planners.
