Nowadays, self-organized travel, in which a tourist without the help of travel agents forms his tour package, buying air tickets, booking hotels, transfers and other services, is becoming increasingly popular. All this became possible primarily thanks to the development of Internet services, which have recently become available and easy to use. In addition, the system of electronic payments allows you to pay for the ordered services in a short time anywhere in the world. It can be concluded that the share of independent travel will increase every year. The most popular destinations for such independent travel are national capitals and large cities with well-developed infrastructure. According to the latest research, tourists come on average for 3-4 days, stay in economy class hotels (or rented apartments), eat in authentic medium level establishments. While on holiday, they visit certain sights, such as museums, monumental buildings, nature reserves and so on. Much time is also spent walking around the city, when tourists enjoy visiting and resting in city parks. In this article, we will consider the impact of urban parks on tourism, as well as highlight the main benefits of developing the urban park environment in the context of sustainable development of the territory and attracting tourists.
