World’s ten greatest large urban parks

The smallest park on the list is the 60-acre Luxembourg Gardens in Paris.

Infrastructurist has posted its list of the ten greatest large urban parks.  It’s interesting to see them all viewed from above at roughly the same scale, and to see how they interact at that scale with the form of the urban fabric around them.  But like all best-of lists, the real fun here is in the debate–while the authors do note that all of their selections are in Europe and North America, there’s still a lot of contestation and [mock?] outrage to be found in the comments section.
