Greenacre Park in New York, NY - At only 1/7 acre, this is one of the smallest hidden parks in the city, but it provides a nice lush place to relax and take a break from the urban landscape. The crowning feature of the pocket park is the 25-foot waterfall, which is not only stunning, but also roars away the city noise so you're left in a calming oasis. The park was constructed in 1971 by the Greenacre Foundation after a design by Hideo Sasaki.
