A Urban park or a Metropolitan park, also known as a Public park, are parks in cities and other incorporated places to offer recreation and green space to residents of, and visitors to, the municipality.

Common features of municipal parks include playgrounds, gardens, hiking, running and fitness trails or paths, bridle paths, sports fields and courts, public restrooms, boat ramps, and/or picnic facilities, depending on the budget and natural features available. Park advocates claim that having parks near urban residents, including within a 10-Minute Walk, provide multiple benefits.
