New York's Central Park is fantastic - the only thing I don't like about it is its rectangle strict shape, but other than that it is magnificent

I visited Barcelona's Guell and wasn't impressed at all, it's not my type

Yeah but if we speak about National Parks, the city of San Carlos de Bariloche itself in Argentina is within the boundaries of a national park, the Nahuel Huapi National Park.
