In the 17th century, the parks were there for the rich, people who had enough money for a country estate. Around 1900 this changed and city canals were used by the wealthy middle class to take a walk or ride in a carriage. Parks have always been a place where painters liked to be because of the liveliness and diversity of the visitors, elegant ladies chatting on a bench, walkers, horse riders, children playing, a stall on the corner where a drink or ice cream could be bought and all this in a beautiful green and colorful environment.
