It is important for all towns and cities to have large public outdoor places like squares and parks. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
I think that squares and parks are the foundation of modern cities and have become an indispensable part of cities. So squares and parks should be established in every city and town.
First, urbanization is the progress in which population has converged. In some villages, residents usually live around small public buildings, like churches. With increasing population, these confined spaces could not meet the demands of the locals, and therefore, large squares and parks have been established to host lectures, ceremonies and even carnivals. Therefore, it is of high necessity for a city to possess prestigious squares or parks.
Besides, in urban areas, when assembly occurs for celebrations or festivals, a large number of residents will get together to listen to lectures or appreciate performance. If there were too many participants swarming into narrow and crowded public space, trampling events would happen inevitably. On the contrary, squares which provide broader areas and hold huge population can easily avoid these tragedies
Thirdly, squares and parks have increasingly become a city landmark. For example, Central Park in New York and Red Square in Moscow have represented character and history of the city, and therefore, they have become one of the most significant components to the city, let alone more tourists and travelers have been attracted to cities for grand monuments on squares and admire tranquility in bustling city.
In a nutshell, city residents are used to living with squares and parks, which has become an inalienable part to modern life.
