Good city parks can feel miraculous. In a matter of moments parks let you escape the hectic bustle of the city and relax amongst manicured gardens and beautiful old trees. You can picnic with friends or relax with a book and live out your fantasies of country living. For a little inspiration, here’s a list of some of the prettiest city parks in the world that’ll leave you dying to get out of the house and catch some rays somewhere grassy.’
