Did you know

that Central Park (843 acres) is almost twice as big as the whole country of Monaco (482 acres)?

And that's not the only one: Golden Gate Park in San Francisco is 1,017 acres, Balboa Park in San Diego is 1,200 acres, Griffith Park in Los Angeles is 4,210 acres and Mission Trails in San Diego is a whopping 5,800 acres. None of those are actually the biggest city park in the country though, that honor goes to South Mountain Park in Phoenix, which contains over 16,000 acres.
