I really would recommend a translation of "historic" here. "Historical" usually has to do with the study of history, e.g. historical institutes of various countries. "Historic" usually refers to something that has played a significant role in history, e.g. a historic speech, house, date. Many other languages do not make this distinction, but some (Hungarian, Czech, Slovak) do, I think, make something like this.

I do not think you can make that distinction in danish, ex. "det historiske institut" is an institute for the study of history, but i would interpret "den historiske park" as a park that has somehow been important in our history. You have to guess by context.

Taking your use of 'historic', there is no reason to assume that 'the parks' have/had an important role.

I suppose you are right, though historic parks (Tivoli Gardens, the Bois de Boulogne, Central Park, Lincoln Park, VDNKh, etc.) are a lot more common than historical parks, which I suppose would be open air historical museums. The Statue Park outside Budapest, in which the Communist era monuments are gathered would be a historical park to me, for instance.
