Dmarney! I really like your thread. It is very interesting to know about beautiful and largest parks of other cities. I want to talk about the Jhingson Park in Beijing. It is one of my favorite parks. It attracts every one. Here I am sharing its images.

Tem 2 cidades brasileiras que admiro muito seus parques, é Goiânia e Curitiba, ambas capitais de estados. É indispensável hj uma cidade grande, média não ter parques, quebra um poco daquela vida urbana corrida, aquele cinza que vem da concentração de concreto...

This is the biggest park in my hometown Aalst (Belgium), a town with 80000 inhabitants. The park itself and the nearby nature reserve 'Osbroek' lay in the southern part of the city.
A big part of the park is mainly planted during World War I to create extra employement and to avoid that people in the city would get forced to work abroad.
Along the riverside, abbandoned factories are currently getting replaced by new park area and new sport facilities.

Not the largest (it is the 2nd largest with 148 hectares) and not the most central one, but the Stadtpark in Hamburg is probably the most iconic one in the city. It has various sports grounds (Tennis, football, track&field), several playgrounds, a huge meadow which is very popular for barbecue parties, a public bath, a large shallow pool for kids (3.000 sqm), a planetarium, an open air stage, boat rental, model boat pool

Planetarium in the Stadtpark



Second most iconic park is the park "Planten un Blomen" with 47 hectares. It boasts a japanese garden with japanese teahouse, a rose garden, the old botanical garden with its greenhouses, a public theater and concert stage, an ice rink, a large playground, a pharmacist garden, and a water-light fountain show

In the center of St. Petersburg, Russia, three parks of different types meet each other - Mikhailovskiy garden (lower left) - landscape / English park, Summer garden - formal / French garden (right) and the Field of Mars - parter garden (center-left).
