I would recommend the small "central" park of Bristol, really awesome place to have a drink and hang out with friends and chill

Turning Toronto's Don Valley into a Massive Park

As downtown Toronto's population explodes city planners are in a mad rush to grab whatever slithers of undeveloped lots remain for pocket parks, public space, and squares before developers build on top of them.

The latest announcement is a proposal to deck over the rail lines heading into Union Station and build a linear park above it. That, unfortunately, would only provide 21-30 acres of park. A potentially bigger prize might be to reclaim the Don Valley as parkland for downtown Torontonians. We used to recreate there in large numbers a century ago but roads, rail lines, a narrowing of the Don River, and a 6 lane highway have effectively cut it off from the city. Few use it today.

This youtube video summarizes initial ideas about how to re-integrate the Don Valley, make it more accessible, and designate it a Toronto park. It would amount to a 200 acre park right downtown if realized.
