    Big parks or little parks is there a difference?

    I've been reading up on the subject of big parks vs. little parks and have learned something interesting. Apparently, large 3x3 parks, small 1x1 parks, fountains, playgrounds, ponds, etc. all have the same impact in regards to land value and aura. I don't know if this is true or not, but it is worth trying out. If one could get the same effect from a small park as a large park, it doesn't make sense to waste land on large parks.

    Upon more research, I have learned that types of parks do supposedly have an effect on population caps for a city as follows:

    Code:
    Facility   Size  Cost   Increase in res cap
    ----------------------------------------------
    Ball Park   4    2500   4000
    Large Park  3    1000   2250
    Playground  2    500    1000
    Pond        2    500    1000
    Small Park  1    100    250
    Fountain    1    100    250
    Zoo         4    5000   24000
    Library     2    1000   7000
    Marina      3    3000   9000
    Museum      3    1500   9000

    I personally noticed that Large Parks have much bigger effect on land value than Small Parks and Foutains. I had a hard time reaching a High land value rating by just using Small Parks and Fountains, but as soon as I introduced Large Parks everything went up to High and in some cases reached Very High.

    I don't have Simcity 3000 Unlimited (I have the regular 3000).

    Also, sorry if I double post. =\

    I think, I have observed some of the same tendencies with land values.
