As with many refined European cities, Vienna is rich with excellent parks and gardens. They provide refuge for resident urbanites fleeing the hustle and bustle of daily life, and are a pleasant diversion for tourists taking in the landscape of the city. The following suggestions should meet the requirements of both.

1) Schweizergarten

Originally named Maria Josefa Park when it was conceived and constructed between 1903 and 1904, this gem was renamed Schweizergarten after WWI. Within the grounds, there is a sculpture dedicated to Chopin by the polish sculptor Krzysztof Bednarski (among other works of art by distinguished artists) and a landscaped English garden, with streams, ponds, a rose garden, a restaurant and a municipal outdoor pool for children.
