Explanation

The sentence characterizes certain physical features of the park and contrasts them with the park’s location within a major city. The blank must describe those features so as to provide that contrast, which “urban” and “spurious” do not. While “remarkable” and “noteworthy” produce sentences with the same meaning, they also do not provide the required contrast between the park’s features and its location. Thus the correct answer is bucolic (Choice A) and pastoral (Choice E).
