Like many of us, when lockdown gripped, travel journalist Tom Chesshyre took to the local park for his one walk a day with more purpose and curiosity than ever before. His excursions through Richmond Park in South West London drew him into researching its rich history, which in turn prompted him to revisit his old notes from park visits across the planet. From Pyongyang to Bogotá and Edinburgh to Cape Town it becomes clear how parks are not only universally necessary to our quality of life, they are also essential to our cities’ histories, rich with stories and full of links to events and characters long gone. Park Life is more than just a guide to joyous green spaces, it’s a history of world urbanisation sketched with fondness from the peace and quiet of a park bench.
