Today’s word is PARK [pahrk].
The first definition of the word park comes as an area of land, either in it’s natural state or landscaped for the enjoyment of the public. Public parks have a few common features such as having facilities for rest and recreation. At the very least, parks have an open field of grass to use for various activities.
Sentence: “Let’s go take the dogs for a walk at the park.”
The second definition is the act of parking your vehicle; to park. To park, you are placing your vehicle in a certain location or lot that is designated as a parking space. Usually found next to malls, offices and other establishments.
Sentence: “I will park my car at the mall when I go shopping.”
The third common definition comes in as an area of land again. Parks can be privately owned but still cater to the public. They usually come in the form of a stadium, theme park or some sort of wildlife preservation like a safari.
Sentence: “Disney Land is my favorite theme park.”
