NOMINATE: Best Public Park

Nominate your 3 favourite Public Parks.

Please use this thread for nominating only. You may post 1 picture per nomination. If you wish to discuss the topic in detail, or post larger numbers of pictures, then please use the "DISCUSS:" thread.


-----------------


General rules:
The Hall of Fame forum is where we decide about our all-time favourites from the world of skyscrapers, skylines, buildings and cities. Every week users can nominate and vote in a specific category.

The five nominations that get the most mentions will be up for the final vote the week after. The one receiving the most votes will go into the Hall of Fame.

Nominating
If you name more then three, only the first three will count. If you name the same structure or city three times, that will be counted as one. Do not use this thread for discussions.

Promoting your favorite
Discuss this week's topic in the 'DISCUSS:' thread.

St James's
Regents Park
Central Park

and...4. Barnes Wetlands Centre, London (seriously, any londoner who hasnt been should go) get some nice views of Empress State and PO Tower.

Could easily have slipped another London park in there. One of my favourite aspects of London, the greenery. Stunning
