euro quiz # 69 - All About Parks...

Jump to last reply

not bridges - made a mistake - all questions refer to the hopefully benign realm of European parks:

1- This fairly new Paris park was built on the site of a demolished French car factory in the 1990s or so?

2- In this German park you can now see folks surf - yes surf and see a copy of a Chinese pagoda (a pleasant beer hall)?

3- "without worry" is the name of this large park with a palace of the same name in it?

4- In London you can see life-size reproductions of dinosaurs in this vast park which also has in it the remains of an imposing building from the 1850s World Fair held in Hyde Park?

5- In this famous park you can straddle time - step from one hemipshere into another - the home of time they call it?

6- This open-air park of traditional Swiss rural life circa 1900 is lovlingly set in a bucolic park overlooking Lake Brienz.

7- Canadian troops once bivouacked in this large Amsterdam Park known now for attracting an eclectic type crowd and being an official place where gays can have sex al fresco as long as it is within prescribed areas and out of view of others. The Melk Huis in this park is a favorite for Amsterdam parents who can drink wine or beer while watching their toddlers play on a large playground?

8- This British city's ssprawling large park has been called a template for New York's Central Park?

9 - This large park near this Italian city's central train station dates from the 1660s and was ordered re-deigned by Napoleon in a classic French motif?

10- Paris' La Villette park was largely built on the site of what former enterprise?

OK - first to win gets 3 tons of still piling up Michigan snow (plus S&H)!
