Anyway, selecting parks from huge cities seems invalid with much greater parks in much smaller cities. The most beautiful urban park must imho be Palais des Papes, Avigon and Marienbad, Kassel and many others beat the parks of the huge cities. Come on, Hyde Park is a nice park in a great city. It's not the park that would rank amongst the 4 best.
Travel more, Foxy. Start in Paris: Boulogne, Luxembourg, Vincennes, Versailles, Fontaineblau while I can think of lovely parks on Wales' West Coast, just not sure whether they're public. Carolina, north of Copenhagen is another that deserves a mention.
People should veer away from the idea that great things can only happen in huge cities. With parks I find it's rather the opposite. In England I'd nominate Canterbury and Chester over London. The usual hang-up on London, I'm afraid.
