If Jacksonville doesn't have the most, then it's gotta be close. At least one third of the "city" is semi-rural. Here's a county map, and as we all know, the city and county borders are one and the same, save for the small strip along the ocean where Jax, Neptune and Atlantic Beach are.



Everything east of that 295 loop is basically the boonies. Same with most of the area north of the loop. And portions of the rest (inside and east of the loop) are kind of undeveloped as well, though that has been quickly changing.

This isn't just IN the city of Pittsburgh, it's in a neighborhood with a population density of 12000 ppsm, and a walkscore of 90.

Virginia beach is weird, Even though it's one big spread out city it basically functions as it's own county. Those place you linked are actually classified as rural.

I think posting pics in parks is cheating. Obviously there will be no buildings around AND all cities have parks...

Not necessarily.

Most city parks still show some urbanity around.

Just for example, Trinity Park here.

Seattle has a lot of ravines, steep hillsides, and wooded parks where you can forget you're in a city.

Pittsburgh for sure. There are areas in the slopes where you think you slipped into a small West Virginia enclave.
