Golden Gate Park is the Most Valuable Green Space in the World

A recent study, published in the London Evening Standard last week, compared 12 iconic urban parks in the world in terms of the value of the real estate they occupy.  The results:   Golden Gate Park in San Francisco is the most expensive urban green space in the world.   It is worth more than $49 billion.  The study calculated values by multiplying the size of the park by the average apartment value per sq/m in the city.  Central Park in New York, which is smaller than Golden Gate Park, is worth more than $45 billion based on New York property prices.

Obviously the cultural capital enjoyed by these parks outweighs their monetary value.  Let’s hope that doesn’t change!
