This is one of my favorite parks. Its located at the foothills of the Margalla hills in Islamabad, pakistan.

Its soo clean and charming...and you get the view of the whole city from it.

The General Life/ Al-Hambra

Dear all,

Here are a few pics from "The General Life Garden", the private residential palace of the glorious Moorish Spaniard rulers !!! It is located in Granada (Andalucia, Southern Spain)

Simply beautiful........ a very breath-taking experience !!!

A must-see for all "human history" seeking travellers.

Portland's Forest Park, the largest wilderness park within any American city and the third largest park of any classification in the country.






Mt Tabor, one of only two volcanoes within city limits in the continental US(the other is in Bend, Oregon).

the tree area is Stanley Park In Vancouver - this is an older pic - many of the trees in the lower right were blown down in a big windstorm in 2006 - 1000's of trees were lost and replanting just started the last couple of months



some of the devastated area - its actually made for great views that were blocked by the trees



this is now - this used to be a thick wall of trees and you couldn't see much like you can now

image hosted on flickr




it is surrounded by a sewall where people walk, jog, rollerblade, bike etc.

alright guys, it's time to revive this thread with pix of two of the parks & gardens of the City of Tel Aviv!

Yarkon Park (Park HaYarkon)
The largest in the city, bigger than Central Park, located uptown












Dubnov Garden
Located in the city centre, it hosts many mothers and children, and also young and creative people.
