The Toronto Music Garden

Quote:
Inspired by the pictorial element in Johann Sebastian Bach's Suites for Unaccompanied Cello, internationally renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma collaborated with a number of artists to produce Inspired by Bach – a six-part film series. The series was produced by Rhombus Media Incorporated and broadcast in 1997 and 1998. It has also been made available for home video.

For the first film in the series, The Music Garden, Mr. Ma worked with landscape designer Julie Moir Messervy to interpret in nature the music of Bach's first suite. As a result of the film project, Yo-Yo Ma, Julie Messervy and Rhombus Media Incorporated approached the city of Toronto. The Parks and Recreation enthusiastically embraced the project


Located in Toronto Harbour, the Toronto Islands is a one-of-a-kind park. Located right across from Downtown Toronto, the Toronto Islands, include multiple beaches, trails that travel around the series of islands, a small amusemant park, a "clothing-optional" beach, and is home to countless festivals. As well, Toronto City Airport is located on the most western island. The future of the airport is unclear because of a bid to host the 2016's world's fair. One of the possible sites would involve the airport being removed.

NYC's Central is prob the most striking oasis, as it's surrounded by skyscrapers.
Grant Park defines Chicago's waterfront. It has a great layout and looks great from the air.

I'm liking Parque del Buen Retiro and Central Park.

Here's Hyde Park in London:

Sutton Park in Sutton Coldfield near Birmingham, England. It is the largest urban park in the world, larger than Central Park! Which is infact quite small compared to it.

Richmond Park in London is almost 2,500 acres (10km²), whereas Sutton Park is at 2,400 acres. (9.7km²). Because of the rounding, the figures may be close. Richmond may even be smaller.


As for the best park, I think several urban parks deserve the title.

Central Park is the best public park in the world. Where else can you find a 2.5 square mile park one block north of the world's busiest commercial district??

I also like Vancouver's Stanley Park, which is just steps from the city and forms an intermediary between the ocean and the city.
