in Bratislava (Slovakia) there are two very popular parks: the first is Medical garden, popular mainly between young people

by alien from SSC

the second one is Sad Janka Kráľa, or Janko Kráľ orchard, is one of the first public parks in Europe. In past it was larger, but now is very nice, too

The Hague, Netherlands

My personal favorite is Koekamp, near Central Station. I always refer to it as Central Park though that's not its common nickname
There are some very exciting high-rise projects going on in the area (near the tall buildings on the photo) so the view is going to be much improved some 5 years from now!

My second favorite is Lange Vijverberg, which isn't technically a park (more a Lane) but I treat it as such. I just love it there:

The favorite parks in your city/neighborhood

Pershing Square Park, Downtown Los Angeles. It is one of the beautifull park in the country. I love to visit this park on regular basis.

Cathedral Square - Milwaukee, WI

My favorite park in Milwaukee is probably Cathedral Square, because it is so often during the summer full of people having a good time:

Taunusanlage in Frankfurt. Probably the most central park of the city.
Isaiah 28:2
Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.

Matthew 7:25
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Brussels, Belgium

The ponds of Ixelles offer a unique architectural and artistic setting. They are located between the Avenues Général-de-Gaulle and Eperons-d'Or, they are an extension of the gardens of the Abbey of la Cambre. At the end of the first pond, the neoclassical façades with their triangular pediments are an original transition between the Chaussée d'Ixelles and the residential area of the ponds. On the side of the ponds, another scenery : the houses, built in 1870-1880 in an eclectic style and red bricks were designed by Victor Besme. We can also discover houses in a Flemish neo-renaissance style, art nouveau and art deco, with, as main representative, the building of the National Broadcasting Institute on the Place Flagey.

Kalemegan, Belgrade, Serbia

Kalemegan, Belgrade, Serbia
old fortress, converted in park, with few museums.

Sorry on so many pictures, but this is just 20% or maybe even less of what you can see on Kalemegdan.
