City parks create an oasis in the middle of densely populated urban environments. Designing, building and maintaining these city parks presents unique challenges. These ten city parks are considered the most beautiful in the United States for different reasons.

1. Hagerstown City Park

2. Patterson Park

Patterson Park is located in a densely populated neighborhood in Baltimore, Maryland. It is one of the most beautiful parks in the country because of the restrained landscaping and the views of the surrounding city. The park contains a four-level observation tower on a hill in the center. The majority of the space is open with low plantings and flowers around groomed walkways and bike paths. Patterson Park provides open space where city residents can relax and where festivals are held each year.
