    This Is What "Central Park" Looks Like Around The World

    I'll see you in Canada.

    Central Park - New York City, United States of America.

    This is the most well-known Central Park. It's about 843 acres which could equate to 16 billion apartments in New York. But hey, at least you have a nice view.

    Central Park - Deir ez-Zor, Syria.

    This park is massive. However it is less park and more fountains.

    Central Park - Burnaby, Canada.

    This Central Park is so big that it has tennis courts, putt-putt golf and a swimming pool. Is this even a park or is it a recreational centre?!?!

    Central Park - Serres, Greece.

    Serres has a population of less than 60,000 which may explain why the park itself is so small.

    Central Park - Florence, Italy.

    You would think that this whole block of land is Central Park, but actually it's a racecourse. "Central Park" is that patch of green on the side.

    Central Park - Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

    This Central Park has an illuminated fountain and a pool. A damn pool.

    Central Park - Karas, Namibia.

    Namibia is covered in desert and is the driest country in Sub-Saharan Africa. When you look at it like that, this park is full of trees.

    (Sandton) Central Park - Johannesburg, South Africa.

    Johannesburg has planted so many trees that they are now the city with the biggest man-made forest. According to Google Maps, the trees haven't reached this park yet, but still.

    Central Park - Melbourne, Australia.

    This Central Park is just under 19 acres. Also, the oval of the park looks like a cat head.

    (Salt Lake) Central Park - Kolkata, India.

    This park is infamous for being a "lovers" hot-spot. If you're a strong, independent individual, hold your own hand and venture in.

    Central Park - Church Village, Wales.

    The letters K, Q, V and Z don't exist in Welsh. I love Par-s.

    Central Park - Lahore, Pakistan.

    Lahore has very fertile ground which is probably why the park's grass looks so lush.

    Central Park - Wellington, New Zealand.

    Wellington has 50,000 hectares of parks and forests. However, this park is so big it probably is already 49,000 hectares on its own.

    Central Park - Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala.

    Antigua used to be the capital of Guatemala and is surrounded by volcanoes. This is a park though, not a volcano.

    Central Park - Airdrie, Scotland.

    Modern golf came out of Scotland. You can't play golf at this park, but they did create it.

    Central Park - Nairobi, Kenya.

    The Czech Republic is almost completely surrounded by mountains. Not this park though - it's surrounded by roads and the Vltava River.

    Central Park - Transístmica, Panama.

    The country of Panama is comprised of approximately 39% forests. This park, however, is not one of them.
