I don't think Grant Park is comparable to Central Park. Central Park seemed to be much larger with more activity when I last visited New York.

They're not comparable. Lincoln Park would probably be Chicago's version of Central Park. Grant Park is a much more "formal" park situated downtown.

Either way - Central Park for sure.

i think if it was Central Park vs Grant, Millennium, Maggie Daily, and Northerly Island Chicago would win. all these parks are touching each other and could i guess be considered a park "campus" of sorts, but any one vs Central Park there is an obvious winner.

As I said in another thread on the same topic..... This older thread got reawakened......
....so I will add ⤵
---NYC's Central Park is as a giant courtyard .....to ESCAPE the Big City around it and playground with far more then a sandbox. It is also EUROPEAN and OLD-WORLD in style and flavor.
---CHICAGO'S Grant Park on its Lakefront. Which has Millennium Parks as part of it and the Museum Campus. Even a connection to Navy Pier..... is as a Front Lawn and to PRESENT you to the Big City before it. It is also AMERICAN and CONTEMPORARY in style and flavor.

Grant Park for it's water fountain (Buckingham is larger and nicer than CP's Bethesda Fountain) and waterfront view (I take a view of Lake Michigan over a pond any day). However, I will go with Central Park for everything else.
