MARINGÁ, Paraná, Brazil

Population Municipality: 331.412 (IBGE/2008)
Population Metropolitan Area: 591.150 (IBGE/2008)


Brazilian cities don't have huge sprawling green suburbs. The urban pattern is completely different. Maringá is maybe the greenest city in Brazil.

SINGAPORE

Within the urban areas of Singapore, greenery is incorporated as much as possible into the urbanscape in some of the following ways:

1) Parks (can be full scale parks, smaller gardens or interim green fields)
2) Park-connectors (networks of linear pedestrian paths linking parks. Frequently found beside canals or built over canals, thus saving space and adding greenery)
3) Streetside-landscaping
4) Sky gardens and green roofs.
5) Urban design controls (planning requirements imposed on developers mean they may set aside space for outdoor landscaping and open plazas)

Examples:

A park in the civic district

Landscaping under flyovers/viaducts

Interim green spaces - can be landscaped or left open for recreational uses

Nature trails are incorporated where possible to allow an urban escape. The latest to open in Singapore are the Southern Ridges trail, extending westward from the city outskirts:

What is "green" - lots of parks, sustainable development, recycling facilities, etc?

Han(n)over, Germany
One of the greenest cities in Germany, judged by the percentage of parks, forests etc compared to the whole city area.

Eilenriede forest, which extends from the city center to the outskirts (6,5km²)



Herrenhausen Gardens



Hannover is not only green but also blue: Maschsee lake, right next to the city center





Banks of river Leine, with some ponds in Ricklingen district and Maschsee lake in the background

Odesa looks stunning - the streets must be beautiful there.

The term "green city" can have several meanings.

1) There is green in an environmentally-conscious way. So cities that are implementing policies to reduce energy use, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce water use, reduce garbage, and reduce their impact on the environment in general (I think Sweden probably leads the way)

2) There is green in the leafy-green-parks-and-trees green This thread is about cities with lots of parks and green-space.
