Yes, there were so many parks with the same number of small nominations, it would have been a tie for 5th place with about 10 different choices. These 4 here, though, received significantly more than the rest, so it made sense just to include them.

Was very difficult for me : HP or Guell - I choose the latter, more innovative

Central Park.

Hyde park is stunningly beautiful as are most of the London Parks but I don't think anything will ever replace the feeling of walking around Central Park with the skyscrapers overlooking me. It's quite awe inspiring. I haven't been to Barcelona so I cannot comment on the Parque Guell, but my parents are travelling there in a few weeks so I'll examine their photos.

Hyde Park is great, but it's no Central Park. My vote goes to the Big Apple.

Went to Hyde Park as a 8 year old and I don't remember much about it. Central Park is a menacing place. Someone recently pointed out a used crack case to me and I remember seeing them all over Central Park when I lived in metro NY.

I'll take other: Estabrook Park in Milwaukee! Best sledding in Milwaukee.

The pics are the nice.

Central park from the list... but in reality, to me, Chicago has the best parks to me.
