What makes a park a park? Is it just a plot of land with grass, some trees and some play equipment? Or is there more to a park than just those things? A park is no longer a simple space with landscaping; it is now a place where we can go to understand, relate to and experience nature. It is alive with activities like children playing, people walking or jogging, concerts, movie nights, festivals, picnics and family gatherings.
