With over 4,210 acres of both natural chapparal-covered terrain and landscaped parkland and picnic areas, Griffith Park is the largest municipal park with urban wilderness area in the United States. Situated in the eastern Santa Monica Mountain range, the Park’s elevations range from 384 to 16,245 feet above see level.

"The park covers 3.73 square kilometers which makes it the largest city park in Europe and larger than New York's central park (3.4 square kilometers)."

Stanley Park

The be all end all of city parks. Unlike NYC's central park which has been 100% landscaped, Stanley Park is a wilderness oasis in the heart of one of the worlds most beautiful cities. Home to mountain bike trails, a 10km sea wall, a world class aquarium, miniature rail, golf course, lakes, beaches, hikeing trails, view points, water park, native art, gardens, sports fields, historical sites and much more. Visiters are amazed at the vast size of the park and its proximity to downtown.


You Can See Just How Big Stanley Park Is.

I would say Park Guell in Barcelona, damn amazing.

2nd, English Gardens in Munich. Incredible with the rushing water through it

3rd Botanical Gardens in Sydney, beautiful right on the harbour.

Wascana Centre in Regina, Canada: 930 hectares (2,300 acre)
And thats a city with a population of only 200,000, and every tree is hand planted, even the lake was man made

The park also includes a 223 hectare marshland wildlife habitat

Well, although completely dwarfed by NY's Central Park and the likes, I'd still like to nominate the Noorderplantsoen park in my city of Groningen, the Netherlands.
