It's more natural to write, "It is surrounded by three parks."

You should use "among" when you're comparing more than two. Divided between two people, divide among four people. "Hidden between the bushes" means in the middle of two bushes "Hidden among the bushes" implies many more bushes (and a much better hiding place) In your example, where you're describing location, I wouldn't say "among". You could say "midway between two parks"... I guess 'In the middle of three parks' would be the best I could come up with in that case.
