Sample 1

Introduction

Although there are numerous parks in my neighbourhood, one is unique and worth mentioning.

 When do you often go there? 

I go there twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening.

Where is it?

It is a stone’s throw away distance from my home.

Who do you often go there with?

In the mornings I prefer to go there alone, whereas in the evenings we are a group of friends. Whenever I spend time in this park, I feel satisfied, like I am having a walk on air.

What is it like?

It is a big park with a lush green outfield. It has a fountain in the middle, which provides a cool breeze and is a boon for visitors in the scorching heat of summer.

And explain why you like to visit it.

I like to visit it for many reasons. Firstly, it always remains clean and pristine, and I feel close to nature whenever I go there. Every morning, I reach the park at 5 p.m. and do stretching exercises, and after that, I run on the jogging track for 20 minutes. After that, I walk and talk to myself; it helps me plan my day, and my worries go for a toss while roaming here. Moreover, in the mornings, it looks as pretty as a picture.

I come here and spend gala time with my friends in the evenings. We talk about the summary of the day and crack jokes which generate guffaws of laughter. After walking in the evening in the park, I feel calm and relaxed. Spending picnics in this park also appeals to me under the open sky.

Lastly, I like this park because it helps the people of my neighborhood remain fit and healthy. It is like a breath of fresh air for my city residents as they spend the most time in the hustle and bustle of urban development. Every community should have a garden like this, which can serve the purpose of a nature playground where people can spend their leisure time productively.

Sample 2

Introduction

Being a nature enthusiast, I visit a park.

When you often go there

I go there every morning.

Where it is

It is about 10 km from my residence.

Who do you often go there with

I went there with my bosom friend Andrew

What it is like

It is not a small park because it is spread over fifty acres. The strong feature of this park is a small waterfall, which adds to its beauty. In the scorching heat of May and June, it provides a refreshing experience to the visitors. Moreover, during that time it is always in full bloom with numerous flowers.

Moreover, it has swings and slides where people from all walks of life come and enjoy. This area is usually full of children and teenagers.

Apart from that, there is an open-air gym where many fitness freaks come for a workout under the arms of nature.

The management team has recruited seasoned gardeners who have green thumbs because, under their aegis, the garden area always looks clean and pristine.

Furthermore, a food court only serves healthy food such as coconut water, fresh fruits and juices, and steamed vegetables.

And explain why you like to visit it.

I like to visit this park for two reasons. The first and foremost reason is exercise. I’m not particularly eager to do workouts in an air-conditioned environment because you do not sweat over there. I like to exercise in an open environment to bring out the best in my training.

Moreover, the second reason for visiting this park is relaxation. It is far away from the hustle and bustle of the city and exhibits a clean and pristine environment. Because of this, whenever I visit it, I feel like the worries in my life have gone for a toss.

This park is a must-visit place for me, and the quality time I have enjoyed here will always remain etched in my memories.

Sample 3

Well I live in a well-developed city, and there are plenty of parks in my city but today I would like to describe the park that is just a stone’s throw away from my home and the name of the park is Emmar Hills which is located in my vicinity.

I go there every day for my routine exercises, and I also go there in the early morning for a walk and in the late evening for a walk. The park provides various recreational activities for all age groups, irrespective of their age.

As far as the park’s interior is concerned, there is a fountain in the center, the main centre of attraction, and a bike area where people can ride their bicycles. Apart from this, there is also a yoga area especially for yoga freak people to exercise in the park regularly. The park is also decorated with various trees and flowers, catching the passengers’ attention.

This park has an area where children can play in groups, and with that, other people can also connect with their schoolmates. The park can be used for community functions, especially in the festive season, so this is the area where I usually go daily, and this is the area where I can perform recreational activities.

Sample 4

There are various gardens, but I would like to discuss one of my favorite gardens, Rose Park. I go daily for exercise. Moreover, I have also joined the old people group, and with the help of this, I do yoga and exercise, which calms my mind the whole day.

After that, I also do cycling or jogging on the path of the park, and in this park, there are facilities such as gym machines for older adults or young people.

If I talk about the minor children, there are areas like sand areas for these children to play with the sand and make the structures and prototypes of monuments. After that, sitting is also available in the park for old age people.

It is a perfect park due to its beauty, and the greenery is well-maintained in this park. Whenever I go to this park, I feel over the moon because the fresh air makes me energetic to exercise more. In particular, this park is also used for community purposes, like my town members arrange parties in that park.

Sample 5

Being a natural enthusiast, I love going to parks and Gardens. Out of the parks that I have visited to date, one of them is unique and hence worth mentioning.

Being busy, I visit this park on Sundays because of the holiday. It is about 10 km from my place, and I often go there alone, but sometimes, if my friends are available, they accompany me.

The best part about this Garden is that it has numerous mango trees in the city’s heart. These trees provide so many benefits. First and foremost, they provide shade throughout the day. Due to this reason, the people who come to the park can be free of time. So that means even if they come in the afternoon, they can have a straw from one corner to another.

The other notable feature of the park is that in the middle of the park, there is an open-year gymnasium where people can do various strength training exercises.

Moreover, people from all walks can come here for various activities. Children have a dedicated play area where the adults can exercise, and the elder people can walk, sit on the benches, and have chat sessions with people of their age group.

I love this park because it makes me feel close to nature. Whenever I visit it, my stress goes for a toss, and I talk to myself while walking there.

Sample 6

In today’s time, parks and gardens provide a serene environment to the people. Finding a pleasant space in today’s urban areas is a delight.

I live in a city with well-developed infrastructure having many parks and gardens. It is called the city beautiful because of its layout and greenery in it.

The city has many parks where residents can go and relax. The part of the city where I live has three beautiful parts, and I love all three of them, but my favorite park is Canal View Park.

In this park, many giant, green, lush trees increase the park’s beauty. I love to go and sit under the shade of trees.

There are two fountains displayed on the way in that park. When they shower, it looks charming. Moreover, music is played at the start of the park and the end of the park.

I often see many families come on holiday and have a picnic. In the morning, I often see the city residents come for a walk, and young kids come for cycling on the park’s path.

Whenever I get the time, I visit this beautiful place, and I usually go alone as I love to walk in its beauty and peace. This place is my little piece of heaven on Earth, and being there is meditative for my soul.

Sample 7

Although I have been to many gardens in my city, one of them is exceptional, and hence it is worth discussing. I go there once a week, and it is in the heart of the city. I go there with my friends mainly in the evening time.

This garden is extraordinary for many reasons, and the first and foremost reason is that it is an old garden. It was built by the Mughal King Aurangzeb, and his architect, Fidai Khan, designed it, and it exhibits Mughal architecture.

There are fountains inside the garden; there is a restaurant also and apart from this the walking area is perfect. There is an open-air theatre, and there is a hotel also. So it is not only a garden but a full-fledged entertainment zone, and last year, the water park was also opened, which looks mesmerizing.

I like to visit it for many reasons. Firstly, whenever I go there, I feel close to nature because the park looks clean and pristine, and there are lush trees and outfields, which make me feel enchanted.

Apart from this, I have a very close connection with this garden because I learned how to walk over there when I was a kid; my parents used to take me there every day, and that is the place where I learned to walk.

Another reason for liking this is that I like to take walks over there because whenever I walk over there, my worries go for a toss. If I have some problem in my life, I visit the park, and I find the solutions to my problem by moving here and there in the park, so that is why I like to visit it.

Sample 8

I have visited many types of parks and gardens in my life. Here I would like to describe a park which is very near to my home. Nowadays, I am in Canada, and I live in a little town about 10 minutes walk from my home.

There is a park. The park’s name is Park View, and it is a lovely park. I always go in the evening with my friends because I am staying with my friends. We usually go together in the evening to spend time with each other’s company. It looks near to nature because there is a lot of greenery, and we can enjoy sitting in the shade of the tree and hearing the birds chirping, which is nice.

Apart from that, there is a fountain in the middle of the park, which increases the beauty of that park, and we always go there to do some walking and exercise. We also spent a lot of time with my friends there, and one of my colleagues also stayed in Beaumont. Sometimes, we also go there and talk about the work routine for the whole day.

It is an excellent place to sit down because people are very busy and have time in the evening or the morning and can go there. It is the best place for me to go in the evening and feel stress-free from my work, and I feel very relaxed physically and mentally.

Parks provide innumerable benefits to the cities. Firstly, they provide unabated support in nosediving the air pollution because most of the towns these days have contaminated air due to the growing number of vehicles and industries.

Apart from this, they enhance the scenic beauty of the cities by giving a vibrant look. The flowers planted in the parks make us feel close to nature, and our mental stress goes for a toss while walking under the arms of nature.

8. What features make a park or garden attractive?

 The first thing is that cleanliness is essential for this area because it is a public place. If nobody is following the rules and regulations about cleaning then it will be very messy and apart from that the authorities should have to take responsibility for managing the strict rules about cleanliness and following these rules, apart from that the people who go there also have some role in doing some work about the maintenance of the cleaning and planting more trees, which is very good for the environment. 

9. How important are green spaces like parks and gardens for urban areas?

 Yes, parks and gardens play a crucial role for urban people because, like in the modern era, there is not a lot of open space in urban areas, and people have only place parks and gardens where they can go and sit down in the natural beauty, and they feel fresh. They get the fresh air there, so it’s very near to nature.

 10. What improvements would you suggest for parks and gardens in your area? 

 Nowadays, I’m staying in Canada, so there are a lot of parks and gardens available near every area, and people can quickly go there. Still, the government should have made some rules about cleanliness and maintaining everything related to the parks so people can also follow the rules. Because it’s a natural beauty and if we do not care about it, things will spoil, so we have to follow some stringent rules about cleanliness.
