Our September issue focuses on the crucial role that parks play in our everyday lives. Whether it be in the Middle East, China or Europe these open green spaces provide a mental break for the member, there so much more than places to exercise. Parks have become the lifeblood of modern urban societies. Cairo is one of the most culturally rich metropolis’ in the world, albeit with a complicated past. Yet, despite having its shine tarnished on more than one occasion, Cairo residents remain steadfast in their devotion to the city. It’s this genuine love for their hometown that has inspired neighbourhood activists, non-profits and crowdfunding partners to collaborate to help restore and breathe new life into neighbour parks. Elsewhere in Cairo, the government is picking up the tab for the revitalisation of Al Fustat Park adjacent to the country’s first ever mosque, the historic Amr bin Al Aas mosque. This project will play a vital role in Cairo’s tourism sector, educating visitors both regionally and locally about the park’s colourful past and the role it played in shaping Egypt throughout the Centuries. A similar government backed ‘greening’ public space project is underway in Riyadh as part of the Kingdom’s 2030 Vision to encourage residents to adopt a healthier lifestyle. While in China’s Hangzhou, the rising population has pushed urban boundaries outward which has resulted in new public park developments. Just East of Hangzhou's famous West Lake, Pengbu Central Commons realizes a new vision for urban life, one that is rooted in history and environment.
