According to me the best public park is Micaela Bastidas Park. This is an old city where the loading docks and port facilities formed the industrial heart of the old Buenos Aires. Park has several playgrounds with original games, an amphitheater for festivals, cafes and street vendors selling food, and as a strip of land along a popular promenade for artisans to create tables and tents.

Vancouver Stanley Park is a 404.9 hectare (1,000 acre) urban park bordering downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is the largest city-owned park in Canada and the third largest in North America. The park attracts an estimated eight million visitors every year, including locals and tourists, who come for its recreational facilities and its natural attributes. An 8.8 kilometre (5.5 mile) seawall path circles the park, which is used by 2.5 million pedestrians, cyclists, and inline skaters every year. Much of the park remains forested with an estimated half million trees that can be as tall as 76 metres (250 feet) and hundreds of years old. There are approximately 200 km (125 miles) of trails and roads in the park, which are patrolled by the Vancouver Police Department's mounted squad. The Project for Public Spaces has ranked Stanley Park as the sixteenth best park in the world and sixth best in North America. (Wikipedia)

Beaver Lake, Stanley Park

According to Wikipedia, the Stanley Park totem poles are the most visited tourist attraction in British Columbia. This probably has more to do with the fact that there is no admission charges to see them than to their real artistic or cultural significance. They are nice for sure, however they are replicas; the originals were moved to museums.

Originally there were four totem poles, all carved in the 1880's in the Alert Bay region on northern Vancouver Island. These were initially located at Lumberman's Arch in Stanley Park, then in the 1960's they were moved a short distance to their present location at Brockton Point. Around 1986, the original four were sent to various museums for preservation and replaced by replicas. More pieces, carved by various artists, were added to the Brockton Point collection afterwards.

Stanley Park is crisscrossed by all kinds of pathways and tracks, but the most popular of these is called the "seawall" and it circles the entire perimeter of the park, a distance of 8.8 km (5.5 miles). Today the seawall is connected to other footpaths along the shoreline from Canada Place on Burrard Inlet, pass English Bay right up to False Creek, a total distance of over 22 km (13.7 miles) making it the world's longest uninterrupted waterfront walkway. The seawall is used by an estimated 2.5 million pedestrians, cyclists and inline skaters every year (there are separate tracks for pedestrians and cyclists/skaters). Vancouverites are really lucky to have this; I managed to do the entire length (8.8 km) in about 2 hours.

Chilean rhubarb (Gunnera tinctoria), Stanley Park, Vancouver

This appears to be a gorgeous specimen of Chilean rhubarb, a large-leaved perennial plant native to Chile and Argentina. The leaves can reach up to 2.5 metres (8 ft) across. It has been introduced to several other countries outside its native region, and in some places like New Zealand and Ireland, the plant is considered a pest. In the North Island of New Zealand, for example, it is forbidden to knowingly propagate, distribute, spread, sell or offer this plant for sale.

Here, the Canada geese seem to have been given the task of keeping the lawn short and tidy.

Mine have to be the gardens and parks of Paris - one of the reasons I fell in love with this city. I consider Jardin de Luxembourg the best place in the world. I also love the small park from behind the Notre Dame, and the Vert Galant little garden from the tip of the Ile de la Cite. The Tuilleries, Jardin des Plantes, Buttes Chaumont and the modern Parc de la Villette are also favourites of mine. The big Boulogne and Vincennes parks also provide variety with their forests, botanical gardens, sports facilities, etc.

Other favourites are the Borghese Park in Rome, with its fantastic Renaissance look and feel, and Regent's Park in London, the best kept park I've seen so far. Hyde Park was a major disapointment, I was expecting a garden type park; but in the end I got to appreciate it (and having a horse track is very cool). The Parc Guell in Barcelona was also great, especially because of Gaudi's work there and because of the view from the hill. Speaking of views, the one from the Gellert Hill in Budapest is amazing, especially at night. The park there isn't special though.

Brooklyn Bridge Park is fairly a new public park/space, but its quite become a NYC favorite and offers spectacular views of Lower Manhattan.

Mont Royal, Central Park, Stanley Park and Golden Gate Park are some that I've been to and totally loved.

Parque 3 de Febrero o "Bosques de Palermo"/February 3rd Park or "Palermo Woods" in Buenos Aires, Arrgentina. It's 80 hectares larger than the Central Park of NYC and has lagoons, a zoo, a planetarium, a Japanese garden, a botanical garden and more.

















Even with so many pics, that is just a summary of the park.
