Toronto has massive river valleys which run the entire north-south length of the city proper. The three main ones are Humber, Don and Rouge valleys....each have smaller branches.

Total acreage is hard to tell, but it would be in the tens of thousands of acres.

I would consider Milwaukee's Lakefront one big park...even though its made up of a bunch of them. Its got it all--sailing, fishing, beaches, hiking, kite flying, sports, festivals, museums (one Calatrava and an Eero Sarrinen) and forests.
