Park

 

a tract of land with natural or specially planted vegetation and often including roads, footpaths, and bodies of water. Parks are used for rest and recreation. A formal park, such as Nizhnii Park in Petrodvorets (early 18th century), is marked by the geometric layout of paths, flower beds, pools, and other elements. The trees and shrubs are often trimmed.

Such a park has lawns, ravines, small rivers, lakes, and ponds.
