AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Get out of the galleries and soak up some sun in this giant green park in the center of the city. More than 350 acres of fields invite you to kick a football or toss a Frisbee, and shady groves provide a break from the heat. A large artificial pond offers rowboats for rent, and scattered here and there are relaxing, if slightly overpriced, cafes where you can sit and people-watch. Statues, topiary, ice cream vendors, jugglers, puppet shows and musicians fill out the scene. Weekends are crowded but never overly so (except at the cafes), while weekdays you’ll have plenty of room.
