Model answer :

Introduction :

Well, my City Council tries every possible thing to make the lives of the dwellers better and try to introduce new facilities now and then.

What it is?

Let me talk about one such facility that is not in my city at the moment but can certainly improve it, and it is a park.

How it can be done?

Actually, in my locality, there is no park. However, there is a weekend plot that people use to dumb their garbage. At the same time, you can see stray animals here all the time. This plot is more like a blemish on the face of my locality. It not only stinks badly but also suppresses diseases. What I believe, if this plot is transformed into a garden, it will definitely improve the area. It would help to make my locality clean and green.

In addition, it would allow the community members to socialise as we see the evening as well in the morning time, people with it in the parks, where they sit together, talk. We often see old people sitting together, playing cards and enjoying other activities. Similarly, it would also provide a safe play area for children.

What problem it will solve?

In my area, most children play on the streets, which is quite dangerous as there is always a risk of accidents.

But, a park would offer them a safer place, where they can play. In fact, in parks, there are always swings, rides and many other things, which would also help children to get involved in these activities rather than sitting at their homes and using mobile phone’s.

How you feel about it ?

Last but not least people these days suffer from many health concerns but, in parks, they can go for a walk and Yoga sessions can be organised here as well that would really benefit the people and will ensure the well-being of the community members.

Conclusion :

The local residents have already sent a request to the council about this, and I’m sure the council will accept it and will transform this useless piece of land into a beautiful park.
