TRUTH !!
The Golden Gate Park has been compared to New York's Central Park, but is
20% bigger. It features botanical gardens, Stow Lake and a conservatory of
flowers--just to name a few of the sights to see.

As a Matter of fact, there are five parks in NYC that are larger than
Central Park.
They are; Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Van Cortlandt Park, Staten Island
Greenbelt, Freshkills Park and Pelham Bay Park .

McDowell Sonoran Preserve in Scottsdale (AZ) is the largest city park in the
United States by a long shot, spanning over 30,500 acres.

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon, Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side

The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
He got into a drifted bank
And then we got
upsot
