 Central Park - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Central Park (40°46′59″N, 73°58′20″W) is a large public, urban park (843 acres or 3.41 km²; a rectangle 2.5 miles by one-half mile, or 4 km × 800 m) in the borough of Manhattan in New York City, USA.
When the park was officially completed in 1873, more than 10 million cartloads of material, including soil and rocks which were to be removed from the area had been manually dug up, and transported out of the park.
Following the dissolution of the Central Park Commission in 1870 and Andrew Green's departure from the project and the death of Vaux in 1895, the maintenance effort gradually declined, and there were few or no attempts to replace dead trees, bushes and plants or worn-out lawn.

 Chicago Park District: Lincoln Park
Lincoln Park began as a small public cemetery on the northernmost boundary of Chicago where victims of cholera and small pox were buried in shallow lakeside graves.
This contributed to a larger parks movement, and in 1869, the state legislature created three park districts: the South, West, and Lincoln Park Commissions, each responsible for the parks and boulevards in its region.
Under the direction of the Lincoln Park Commission, bodies were exhumed and relocated to other cemeteries, and the park was expanded south to North Avenue and north to Diversey Parkway.

 State Park Encyclopedia Article @ HillCountryArts.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
State park is a term used in the United States and in Mexico for an area of land preserved on account of its natural beauty, historic interest, recreation, or other reason, and under the administration of the government of a U.S. state or one of the states of Mexico.
State parks are thus similar to national parks, but under state rather than federal administration.
In general, state parks are smaller than national parks, with a few exceptions such as the Adirondack State Park in New York.
