Precious Lung

“Great cities usually owe their parks to royalty or nobility. The centres of Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester are the poorer for lacking such patronage. Edinburgh is blessed with Arthur’s Seat, and Cardiff with Cathays Park. Liverpool’s Sefton Park and Newcastle’s Leazes Park are precious lungs. They do not make these places any more. Parks are pearls beyond price.” — Simon Jenkins.
