In defense of city parks

City parks are definitely a pillar of society, providing a platform for people to congregate in the outdoors. I’m gonna use a lot of big words this time, so don’t be afraid too google some of them. Not only do city parks keep people out of their homes and in some sunshine, they are beneficial to all ages. Old people still have the luxury of laying in grass and smelling clean air, even if they have no way of getting back up without assistance. Children and teenagers are just capable of enjoying the parks the most, because they can still do strenuous activities like playing football in a field. In addition, there are usually a multitude of benches in any park so the elderly will always have a chance to rest their “tired old bones”.

At least nobody calls them a whippersnapper or anything. I can understand how some people may misconceive the management of city parks by the government, especially with shows like “Parks & Recreation” making local government workers look like they do their job as if they were the main characters

in the movie “Clerks”. However, everything you see on TV is not actually real. Especially not kung fu movies that make 20 year old children want to unleash their boundless, violent rage on inanimate objects.

Doesn’t that picture just look inviting and friendly? I believe that people who stay inside all day just don’t have the necessary friends to do activities with. It could be their fault, it could not be. I don’t know everybody on Earth. Back on topic, assuming said city park had any number of trees, it would automatically give back to the community in a natural sense. Who can say no to more oxygen? City parks are also capable of creating memories for people that last a lifetime. I definitely know about this firsthand, as the park that I live nearby has been there my entire life, and it is one of the few constants in my life that I intend on keeping. Plus if you’re hungry you can always just have a picnic at a city park. I see lots of birthdays happening at the park by my house
