Will go with B

D is out for subject-verb number error
A and E are out for the 'than' at the end
With option C, the '3.5 times' and 'more parks.. as..' are redundant

(A) has 3.5 times as many parks per acre than ('as many as' is the correct form for comparison)

(B) has 3.5 times as many parks per acre as (Correct)

(C) has 3.5 times more parks per acre as (more as is wrong form of comparison)

(D) have 3.5 times as many parks per acre as (City is always singular and need 'has")

(E) has 3.5 times as many parks per acre, more than (as many more than is wrong form of comparison)

Kudos please if you like my explanation.

Option D and E are out because of the use of HAVE. Subject city needs a singular verb.

Option A and B are out because of the use of wrong comparison idiom.
Correct idiom is As....as..
