In London there are 3,000 parks.

It is common to hear complaints about the London weather: gray, cold, rainy.

But the British capital, often associated with images of industrial smokestacks and moss-covered bricks, has other attractions: It is, in fact, one of the greenest cities in the world.

With its 3,000 parks and 13,000 species of wildlife, London offers a haven of nature around almost every corner.

For this reason, and although it may seem like an extravagant idea, there is a project that seeks to have this city recognized as a national park.
