I’ d like to talk about the park near my home. It was built in the 20th century. As it is located near a river, the views are really gorgeous. Besides, the air in the park is refreshing because of all the trees and stuff. This park is a famous tourist spot in my hometown. so it sometimes very crowed. I would like to walk around the park when I want to get a breath of fresh air. I have to say, the ecological environment is awesome. I mean, in the city, it’s hard to see small wild animals, but here in the park, I can always spot a squirrel or a frog. Trees in parks reduce air pollution and water pollution to help keep cities cooler. I think all cities need greens.

Parks can improve our physical and psychological health, strengthen our communities, and make our cities and neighborhoods more attractive places to live and work. Moreover, the best thing is, the park is open to the public for free, and it has become a favorite hangout for citizens. Therefore, it offers recreational opportunities for low-income families where people can feel a sense of community.
