Best City Parks For Walking, Running & Biking

April White published a good article in the US Airways Magazine this month about some of her top choices of parks that offer ample exercise opportunities.  Let's Go! Walk! Hike! Run! The Best City Parks takes a look at outdoor options in several major urban areas.  Strangely enough, as many times as I have been to all those cities, I have never made it to any one of the places she lists.  Not a bad thing, just means I must expand my horizons more when I travel.

Here is April's list:
New York City - The High Line
San Diego - Balboa Park
Houston - Discovery Green
New Orleans - City Park
Seattle - Discovery Park
Greenville - Falls Park
St. Louis - Great Forest Park
Philadelphia - Fairmount Park
Boston - Boston Common
Atlanta - Oakland Cemetary
Washington, DC - Rock Creek Park
San Francisco - Yerba Buena Gardens
Chicago - Millennium Park
Phoenix - South Mountain Park
