Seattle has a bunch of these. The OG is Freeway Park downtown but when I-90 was built across Mercer Island they provided a handful of deck parks both large and small. Every single overpass has a landscape strip to conceal the freeway.

Columbus has also discovered the value of this and is slowly adding small decks and enhanced overpasses around downtown.

Detroit has an okay deck park in the suburbs (Hyde Oak Park) that was built, oddly enough, in response to concerns from the Orthodox Jewish community there.

Phoenix has a decent one at Central/I-10, and Duluth has a good waterfront tunnel.
