Le Parc is the twenty-sixth album by electronic artists Tangerine Dream. Each track on the album is inspired by a particular park from somewhere around the world. Le Parc marked Tangerine Dream's last studio release with Johannes Schmoelling; he left the band in October 1985.[2] The title track "Le Parc" was used as the theme for the short-lived U.S television series, Street Hawk. A video was produced for "Tiergarten". The track "Central Park" was used as the opening theme for the movie Diamond Ninja Force directed by Godfrey Ho.
