yeah, this is in a megacity
Having an actual rainforest as a city park is something that, for a temperate climate man like me, is a mindblowing thing. :P

Two of my favorite parks here in Singapore are the Southern Ridges and Punggol Waterway Park.

Southern Ridges is a series of interconnected parks located at the southern part of the city and offers nice vistas of the cityscape - ideal for walks and jogging with friends.

Highlights of the the Southern Ridges below:
Mt. Faber Park lookout points (Views of Sentosa Island and ResortsWorld)


Henderson Waves Bridge


Terraced Garden & Forest Walk


Alexandria Arch & Hort Park

Punggol Waterway Park is at Singapore's northeastern side and offers nicely-landscaped green spaces around natural and man-made waterways. This is my favorite biking spot.

In my small city of Salisbury, the best, and by far busiest park in the city is the Elizabeth Gardens, alsthough Churchill Gardens can also get just as busy.

Built in the 1950's the park contains numerous plants, trees, a playground and a man made river with an island. It also used to have a nice ha-ha wall, but this has recently been demolished. Starting in November 2012, the whole park, as well as the small garden next door to it is undergoing a massive refurbishment, and presently the whole park has been torn up, so these pictures are old now. I also have no idea what the park is to look like as there are no renders, but it's to be finished by next month, so it shall be intresting to see the results.

The other park in the city that is also the busiest. Churchill Gardens is by far the largest park in the city. I think it was built in the 1960's as it's in the "newer" part of the city.

Whilst nice, this park is a bit more neglected than the Elizabeth Gardens in Downtown, and some parts are falling to pieces. In the 1980's/ early 1990's the park was condidered dangerous as well due to it being situated next to the roughest part of the city, with a few people even being murdered. Nevertheless the park is still really popular haha

And a more neglected part of the park



Lastly, this was sadly thrown up next to the park in the 1970's

The third main park in Salisbury is Victoria Park (No guess who it was named after) It is located in one of the more affluent parts of the city, and contains vast open spaces, playgrounds, a cricket pitch, football pich and even a mini golf course (now abandoned, sadly)

Zrinjevac Park is the most famous and one of Zagreb's most beautiful parks, and the first in a series of eight park from Lenuzzi horseshoe decorated according to the idea of the Zagreb city surveyor Milan Lenuzzi. Zrinjevac is named after the Croatian ban Nikola Subic Zrinski. By the second half of the 19th century Zrinjevac was pasture and arable land owned by the parish of St. Mark. When in 1830. was transferred to the cattle fair Harmica, fields are arranged for a new fairground, a square named New Square. Name Nikola Subic Zrinski Square gets the three hundredth anniversary of the death of Croatian Ban Nikola Subic Zrinski. Fairground is left to 1869th year, when it moved to a place where there is the Croatian National Theatre, and at Zrinjevac begin to build palaces in the style of the Italian Renaissance, Neo-Gothic and Classical. By the end of the 19th century Zrinjevac becomes beautifully landscaped park. In the northern part of the square stands meteorological pole placed 1884th , the gift of the town doctor Adolf Holzer. In the southern part there are busts of historic Croatian people - Fran Krsto Frankopan, Nikola Jurišić, Julije Klović, Ivan Mažuranić, Andrija Medulić and Ivan Kukuljević Sakcinski.
